The spine of the wrapper is a deep purple with some minor wear to the head of the spine and to corners. Some gentle soiling to the rear panel. Some very faint staining to the end-flaps. Now housed in a custom-made clamshell box decorated with gilt titles. A rare first edition, first issue and a lovely item indeed.
