Flat SIGNED & inscribed with an Irish salutation on the title page by the author. As new, unclipped, unread and not remaindered. First edition with number line to one. The interior is solid, crisp and clean. Bright clean titles to spine. Corners are sharp and square. Very minor "ding" to the front edge. Very lightly bumped to the head of the spine. The front board has an usual flaw I haven't really seen before, in that it's half-separated or "pulled" at the vertical crease between the spine and front board but still fully attached. It's hardly noticeable with the dust jacket in place. The unclipped dust jacket is very mildly bumped to extremities, repaired 1inch tear/crease to the top corner of the rear panel at the flap fold. This is an unread copy bought new.
