This is a first printing of the Sphere paperback edition with a stated First Sphere Edition 1967.  Age tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  Insides of covers are also tanned. The book is quite fragile and the first 12 pages are partially loose at the bottom.  Covers are showing signs of wear and there is a crease down the centre of the rear cover and a minor crease at the top right-hand corner of front cover.  The covers are grubby, especially the rear panel.
