About This Item

Russell & Russell Publishers, 1962. First Edition. Textbook Binding. Very Good. Disclaimer:A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged. An ex-library book and may have standard library stamps and/or stickers. The dust jacket is missing. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.First edition. Minor shelf and handling wear, overall a clean solid copy with minimal signs of use. Boards betray only trifling fading and discoloration and nicks and imperfections commensurate with age. Binding is tight and structurally sound. Erstwhile library stamps on front endpapers, all interior pages absent any extraneous marks.

Synopsis

From the text: "The craze for first impressions of first editions, and first issues of first impressions of first editions, and first states of first impressions of first editions, has occasionally resulted in speculation and bibliographical absurdity among collectors and dealers.... Any minor change made in the course of the original printing is immediately seized on as constituting an 'issue.' A trial binding used for perhaps twenty copies of salesmen's samples becomes a rare 'first issue.'"
