This 475-page hardcover was published by Nelson Doubleday (not date). This book appears to be unread and in new condition in every way, with only very minimal shelving wear to cover. Pages are crisp; like new. The black hardcover is in like-new condition, with sharp edges and corners. The gold lettering on the face and spine is bright, and like new. The binding is mint. Overall, a very impressive volume. See our 4 photos of this book.
