Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1963. First Edition. First issue dust jacket with no reviews at the rear panel. Ex-library copy from a lending bookstore in New York, with their stamp on the front endpaper, with "35 [cents] First 3 Days, 10 [cents] Each Additional Day," "Library Copy" stamped on the top and bottom page edges. No bruising or markings of a standard ex-library copy. Author's first book.
Very Good plus in a Very Good plus dust jacket. Extremities moderately toned, and brief foxing to the front pastedown, else quite presentable. Jacket slightly rubbed at the extremities, with several tiny closed tears (repaired with cello-tape at the verso), just a hint of fading at the spine, and a small corner crease to the front flap. Overall an attractive copy with a few blemishes to note.
