The wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. There is very little wear at all and it hasn't been price clipped. The book also is very smart. The boards are very clean with no marks. The edges and corners are sharp with no wear at all. The pages are free from foxing and no previous owners ink. It is a very near fine copy. This copy has also been signed and dated by Ted hughes without dedication to the title page. A highly collectible copy.
