Clarke Irwin imported the standard Cape volumes, and added their own very distinctive dust jacket. The book is in very good condition, with a clean fresh interior, with no marks or signatures. The paper has darkened slightly. The green cloth covers are fresh, with just a touch of wear at edges and corners. The dust jacket is also in very good condition. The colour on the spine has faded, but the jacket was protected for part of its life with a mylar cover, so has light edgewear only. However, the front and back flaps have several brown stains where Scotch Tape was used to attach the plastic. . Canadian Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
