Binding is nice and tight. Pictorial wrapper is quite damaged, with front flap at one time being completely detached, but has been stuck back on with browning sticky tape. Bottom 2.5" of wrapper spine is missing and partially repaired with tape. Other splits and tears to wrapper down edges, with a couple of repairs - otherwise, showing signs of chipping. Front panel illustration is still bright (apart from tape). Still a collectable copy of this 1st edition.
