Butterflies of the World

by Sbordoni, Valerio

Condition: Good+/Good+

New York: Times, 1984. Book. Good+. Hardcover. First Edition, Full Number Line. While the book is essentially sound and clean, it and the jacket have a number of minor cosmetic flaws. The book has a trace of cocking (spine slant), two flecks to its front cover and other very minor cover issues. Owner's ex-libris label on half-title page. Owner's rubber stamp and a tiny scar back pastedown. The jacket, which is not perfectly clean, white in the main and showing a bit of minor soiling, also has edgwear but looks splendid in new mylar wrapper. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
