Flat SIGNED on the title page by Ms. Nugent. Like new, unclipped, unread and not remaindered. The interior is solid and clean. Bright gilt titles to spine. Some finger smudges to the edges, small "ding" to the top edge. Unclipped dust jacket is moderately bumped to the extremities with some light creases, number of thin non-penetrating scratches of various lengths to the rear panel, light vertical creases to the front & rear inside flaps, some shelf wear to show. The author's first adult novel.
