Book is nice. Black covers with green lettering on spine. Corners sharp, binding tight, no writing in book. Some glue stains and foxing on end papers. VERY SCARCE the dust jacket has a red bank 1.5 inches hi, around the bottom of the dust jacket. It is a separat piece of paper that wraps around the jacket and says "We shall be surprised if this book is not recognized as his best. " I cant imagine many of these bands have survived. The band is dark where it crosses the spine and has a 1 by.5 inch chip there. Jacket is browned-spine very brown-and some chips and wear.
