Dustwrapper by Hans Tisdall.
Hardback in price-clipped dustwrapper. 256pp. 7.5 x 5.25 inches approx. (190mm x 130mm).
Dustwrapper a little rubbed and worn to extremities, occasional short edge tear; creased and worn to spine head; a touch dusty. Boards bumped to upper corner; bumped to spine head. Offsetting to endpapers, signs of pencil erasure to front free endpaper; page-block bumped to upper corner, spotting to edges.
Overall, showing some light wear but remaining a nice, clean copy in its attractive dustwrapper – uncommon.
