Faint, partial tape ghosts at outer top and bottom corners of paste-downs, else a fine copy in very good four-color pictorial dust jacket (reproducing a superb color painting by Allen St. John on the front panel) with edge wear, mostly spine ends and corners, and dust soiling to spine and rear panels. A fairly nice example of the jacket overall, with bright, very attractive front panel that reproduces one of St. John's finest SF paintings. (#103556).
