First edition, first printing; first issue with "and only moved because the heavy hands were pendula" on page 9, and a bullet between the two 8's of the page number on page 88. Good; lacking the dust jacket. Cloth shows several coffee-type stains, and fading to spine. Bump to top corner of upper board. Two dings to edge of page block with nicks to the pages. A few page corners are creased. One of only 2,500 copies of the first issue.
