Date: 1963

First edition, first printing. Publisher's original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Housed in a bespoke quarter black morocco solander case, the titles in gilt on a purple label to the spine. An excellent near fine square copy, the binding very lightly rubbed at the extremities, the contents without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the near fine original dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed at the extremities and price-clipped to the front flap. An attractive example of a notoriously difficult book to obtain in collectable condition.
