Book Description Collins, 1994. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st ed/1st pr. Unread, square and solid, sharp dust jacket in mylarBrodart, in a word -- groovy! You'll feel as though you've been wanderingover the hills and far away, beyond the fields we know, through faerylands forlorn, once you get this book!!! NOTE: A little smudgey evidenceof handling to the page sides, and a kernel-of-corn-sized, faded,remainder mark to the bottoms. The DJ has an old, 1/4" split at the topjoint of the back cover and the spine, remedied by the Brodart. I want tobe thorough, and having made all of these notations, this is still thebest copy of this book I've seen in fifteen years, and I've seen severaldozen. Bookseller Inventory # 021475
