Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition trade paperback (larger sized 152mm x 235mm) with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Some tanning to pages.  Externally, there are reading creases to the spine and a small (1/2inch x 1/4inch) repair to the top right-hand corner of the front cover.  Covers showing some signs of wear to extremities.
