4.25" x 7". Hardback pocket novel. Stated first edition of the Novel Library edition. Very fine paper for the pages, pretty paper boards look like India print fabric. There is a horizontal scratch on the front cover. That is the only mark on the book. The other two unusual things about this volume are the unusual position of the Gold Printed title on the spine and the folded corner on the title page, an original error at the printer. The title on the spine reads from bottom to top, as opposed to the more conventional position of the words reading from top to bottom. 479 pages. Text clean. Sewn pages. Slight crack at hinge on the last page, but no compromise of the overall structure or soundness of the book. A gem. Our book number 19030.
