Internally free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is complete and is in in near Fine condition. Very light fading to the spine and just a little dustiness to the rear panel. The wrapper is in exceptional condition for its age and looks very bright in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book is profusely illustrated throughout in B/W by the author. One of the scarcest BB titles to find in any condition but more-so in such exceptional condition.
