Complete and tight - but sold as a Working copy. Bound in Half-leather with a leather spine and leather corners, black cloth boards, and with bright gilt titling to the spine. No dustjacket. There is some patchy fading to the boards, loss to the leather right across the top of the spine - c. 2 cm at the deepest, some 'rubbing' marks to the spine and a little loss to the leather corners, but all the titling is untouched. There are a lot of foxing (brown) spots to the Half-Title, the Title Page and to the first six prelim pages. These spots gradually peter out until there are virtually none by the start of the book. There are light foxing (brown) spots and ingrained dust to the page fore-edges, otherwise there are NO inscriptions or other marks.

The text block is complete but it's just not a pretty copy! .
