This is a very good copy of the rarely-seen [London] “Times Book Club” edition, which was bound from early edition sheets but in a plainer binding of smooth dark green cloth. Miraculously, the Cohen bibliography overlooks this edition.
The cloth here is unusually fresh and bright, with a tiny chip at the spine head. The gilt spine type is just a bit dulled. The contents are fine and unfoxed. There is a “Times Book Club” sticker on the rear pastedown.
Truly scarce, especially in this condition.
