First edition, first printing stated

Description : Bright blue covers, blue and gree dustjacket. First printing stated.

Condition : FINE/FINE-. Book is perfect- gorgeous clean covers, tight binding, sharp corners -- perfect. Dustjacket has some sun darkening around the edges, especially along the very edge of the back cover flap. Very, very light chipping at top of spine. Two tiny black spots on the cover that probably are cleanable, but I don't want to risk ruining it! But dustjacket has no curling or tears or creases.
