Full leather binding, with gilt decorations and raised bands on the spine. Clean text; 385 pages, all edges gilt. Unfortunately, this is a Good Only copy. While the textblock is quite acceptable, bright and fresh, the covers are only held together by a massive application of cello tape; the spine is partially demolished. Please note the condition issue. Quercus must offer this as a Binding Copy, in need of repair or restoration. An excellent candidate for a nice rebind.. First Edition. Half-Leather.
