Old book, well over half a century old, and with some age-related damage. Pages are in good readable condition. Hard covers are in fairly good condition, except for some warping and discolouration to the front cover, as shown - it looks as if some water has been spilt on it. Dust jacket is rather tatty, with some discolouration, rips, mends, and small pieces missing, as shown. Personal inscription from the author, dated 1963.
