a very good copy - first edition, first printing with full numberline SIGNED by the author on the title page. this is a read copy, with a lot of care. hardcover is clean, no marks but the autograph, top and bottom show a bit of shelfwear, dust jacket is NOT price clipped, clean, with creases along the top and bottom due to shelfwear. there is one small tear (1mm) top of the DJ's pine. for a lower price book I would probably describe as being in near fine conditions but in this case, I carefully described every little flaw I saw.
