Condition: See description

New York, NY Alfred A. Knopf: Borzoi Books, 1989. Hardcover First Edition USA (1989), so stated. First Edition USA (1989), so stated. Very Good+ in Very Good+ DJ: Both book and DJ show indications of very careful use. The Book shows just a touch of shelving wear to the lower extremities; the binding leans slightly, but remains secure; the text is clean. Free of any creased or dog-eared pages in the text. Free of any underlining, hi-lighting or marginalia or marks in the text. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome copy, structurally sound and tightly bound, showing mild wear and minor, unobtrusive flaws. Bright and clean. Corners sharp. Not far from 'As New'. The DJ shows only a hint of wear to the outside edges: mild rubbing to the panels; faint sun-blanching to the upper panels and backstrip (the titles are unaffected: bold and clearly legible); the price is unclipped. Intact and attractive. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. (9.5 x 6.5 x 1.3 inches). 328 pages. Deckle Fore-Edge. Language: English. Weight: 1 pound, 9 ounces. Hardback with DJ.
