This is a very good copy of the rarely-seen [London] “Times Book Club” edition, which was bound from First edition sheets but in a plainer binding of smooth dark blue cloth.
The externals here are exemplary, with brilliant blue cloth and bright gilt titles. The contents are fine, with a former owner name inked on the front free endpaper and faint foxing throughout. There is toning to the endpapers front and rear, and a tiny “Times Book Club” inkstamp on the rear pastedown.
