Comments & Further Information

A Berkley Medallion Book.  This paperback is an 11th printing dated December 1976 which is in good condition for its age but is showing signs of wear.   The pages are heavily tanned but readable.  There is some glue residue on the first page and a slight watermark at the top of the same page which goes through to the first couple of pages.  The covers are showing signs of wear and are generally grubby.
