About this Item

Jacket graded very good because it is basically still whole and thus much better than the average found these days. Considerable rub along front seam of jacket but this does not affect the design in a serious way. The jacket cover still bright and pleasing. Couple of small chips to jacket cover along upper edge not interfering with any design elements. Head and foot of spine of jacket likewise with light chipping but not seriously affecting. Most of "VIKING" still readable on jacket at bottom of spine. Author name at top of spine untouched by any chipping. Unfortunately a previous owner glued the jacket inside flaps to the front and back paste-down endpapers and this has left a dark brown residue. Somebody has freed the flaps and has mostly done it without harming the flaps for the most part -- leaving only the underside material of the flaps still attached to the paste-down endpapapers. Rather unsightly, but not visible from the outside, so this remains a quite nice shelf copy. Book itself with moderate wear but with no major condition problems. Bookplate of former owner on front free blank endpaper is an attractive vintage one. Binding still serviceably tight. This book with its rather fragile jacket getting harder to find in anywhere near presentable outward appearance. Copyright page with no indication of any later printings. Date of 1947 on title page.
