A republication by Book Club Associates of the book first published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson. A good quality republication, not a substandard reprint. Condition: There is a little edge wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped. There is a very little fading or sunning to the boards, especially towards the edges, and some dust soiling to the top external page edges. Apart from these minor faults, the book is in good, clean, bright condition.
