This is a "very good" vintage hardcover in decorated brown cloth wrapped boards, published in the States in 1974 by Simon and Schuster, 604 pages.

First edition.


Binding is tight with crisp gutters. Text block is very square for a book this thick, closes tightly. Nice cloth head and tail band in the binding. (This book is made so much better than Mr Adam's first novel - "Watership Down", which was bound with notoriously flimsy materials.) All edges of the text block are lightly foxed (spotting from acid content in paper). Aside from a neatly penned last name on the front free end paper, no writing or marks. No loose, torn or folded pages. Endpapers are decorated with a color map of the book's world.

Original matching dust wrapper shows publisher's original price inside front flap. Some tanning along edges on inside of back flap. Some soiling along spine edges, general edge wear. Not perfect, but no writing or significant tears. Now protected in a removable archival sleeve.
