London: Faber and Faber, 1968. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Item #21279
Thin folio. Unpaginated. Pictorial boards and endpapers. Illustrated throughout in color.
A fine copy. The dustwrapper has a short closed marginal tear on the upper panel, just above the "K" in "King", a trace of sunning to the spine. The lower front flap has been clipped. This is the place where the original price of 21s was printed; instead a new price of £1.20 has been inserted. Otherwise this is clearly the original first state dustwrapper, with the prices of the book on the rear flap unchanged.
Signed on the half-title: "Best wishes from Errol LeCain."
Author's first book.
