Touch of rubbing to bottom edge of cover and some dust soiling to top edge of text block, but 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 light edge wear, a bit of toning and fading to spine panel, dust soiling to rear panel, and price clipped from top edge of front flap. A nice example of the jacket overall, with especially bright front panel that reproduces one of St. John's finest SF paintings. Book label of science fiction writer and literary agent Otis Adelbert Kline affixed to front free endpaper. (#74952).
