Flat SIGNED & inscribed on the title page by the author. Gently read if at all, unclipped and not remaindered. Interior is clean and unmarked. Bright gilt titles to spine. Some light staining to the top & fore-edge's. Very lightly bumped to extremities and minor shelf wear to show. Short tear to the top edge of the rear panel at the flap. An amazing 3-month car trip across Canada and back.
