Would appear to be an Advanced Reading Copy with "Publication: 15 September, 1969 184 pages" printed to the rear dustwrapper flap. The $4.95 price to the bottom right corner of the front flap has had a sticker removed and very slightly damaged the $4.95 and left a bit of a sticker pull. Gently rubbed (vertically) to the flap folds and both sides of the spine. Gently bumped to the head of the spine with a very short tear. Short, faint creases to the bottom edges of the front and rear folds. Text block is as new, unread and without markings to the interior. Shallow "ding" across the face of the fore-edge. Cream coloured card wraps, typical of uncorrected proofs in the Canadian market of the day, are clean and very lightly foxed to extremities. Without titles of any kind. Bit of soiling to the top edge, very faint reddish staining to the bottom edge. Not entirely sure why an ARC would come with a dustjacket, but it's a beautiful graphic design featuring the art of Greg Curnoe. Now protected in archival brodart jacket.
