Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: backstrip ever-so-slightly sunned, but titles thereon remain bold and clearly legible; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. Tiny dot at bottom edge (this is not a remainder mark, but a local "new" retail bookstore marks their books this way); a publisher's price sticker, once sew-in to the binding at the front endpaper, has been removed. Free of any creases. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome, nearly-new copy, structurally sound and tighly bound, showing only a couple of very minor flaws. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 12mo.
