Flat SIGNED, dated & inscribed by Mrs. Shadbolt, "for Sophia - with warm thanks for making the "work" so pleasant. Doris Shadbolt Nov. 20 '79." Sophia (Freisen) according to a family member, was apparently involved with the production of the book but I've been unable to determine what her role was. As new, unclipped,unread and not remaindered. Bright gilt titles to spine. Interior is clean and solid. Corners are sharp and square. Dust jacket is lightly foxed to extremities, short, light crease to inside flap of front panel, the odd finger smudge to the interior and very minor shelf wear to show. 5mm "bubble" with a dozen or so miniscule "drops" to one side of the bubble, (may have been caused by heat? Scans available). A unique and beautiful copy.
