This is a 2nd Edition, Thirteenth impression overall, published in 1961, in its original and correct non price clipped Thirteenth impression dustjacket. The book is in Near Fine condition, virtually without fault. The only fault is a bit of toning to the spine of the dustjacket, shows no staining, no chips or loss to the lovely brightly colored dustjacket. A slight bit of foxing to be found on the edges of the textblock. No previous owner's name or any other writing noted. The books cover is clean, bright only the slight bit of darkening to the spine. No bumps or bruises to the corners, no wear or fraying whatsoever. An early collectable copy that shows beautifully with the very nice dustjacket.
