First edition. 72 pages. John Johnson's nameplate on front pastedown.Very good. No dustwrapper.PLEASE NOTE: if this book is described as "first edition", please be assured that this means first printing. Unless otherwise described, the book is in the original publishers' binding. A NOTE ABOUT THE DESCRIPTIONS OF BOOKS: every effort is made to give a full and accurate picture of the condition of each book. After a run-through of any blemishes a book might have, there is an overall assessment of its condition ("fine", "very good", "good", etc), followed by a description of the dustwrapper, where one is present. The grade of condition accorded to any book is, of course, a matter of the cataloguer's opinion, but I will try here to give an idea of my methods. "Fine", for instance, can be taken to mean that the book in question looks virtually as it did when first published (please note that the word "mint" is avoided, for reasons which once seemed compelling but are now forgotten). "Very good" is a notch down from "fine" and usually denotes that the book has been read by one careful owner over the age of fifty-five. "Good" means not very good. PLEASE NOTE: the words "first edition" imply first printing (later impressions are denoted as such). A NOTE ABOUT THE DESCRIPTIONS OF BOOKS: Care is taken to note all faults and blemishes. The grade of condition is of course a matter of the cataloguer's opinion, but you can take "fine" to mean that the book looks virtually as it did when first published (the word "mint" is avoided). "Very good" is a step down from "fine". "Good" means not very good.
