Very Good - / Good only. Item #8083
London: John Lane / The Bodley Head, 1943. First Edition with "First Published 1943" to copyright page. Octavo. 256 pages. Illustrated dust jacket. Blue boards stamped in gilt.
Price-clipped dust jacket is chipped along edges with fading to spine. More crucially, amateur tape repair to jacket verso has browned severely, visible at flaps. Boards are worn and soiled along edges, surely from said tape, and spine toned. Binding is sound. Preliminaries and edges of text block foxed but text only lightly toned in spots.
Overall a very good minus copy in a good only but externally presentable dust jacket. Volume II in Lewis's space trilogy.
