1974 Stated First Edition, 4th printing (B C D E), hardcover. Tight straight spine - if this book was read, it was gently read. Pages and boards are in overall near mint condition! Dustjacket is in excellent condition with only extremely minor corner, edge wear in spots and inside flap corner crease. Jacket appears to have been protected early on in a clear plastic brodart style protective cover which preserved the jacket in this excellent condition!
