HArdcover 1st editiion. Sadly this book was exposed to water at some point. It is now completely dry, no mustiness - but the evidence is there in the form of some general warping and "puffiness" of the pages. Nothing is stuck together and everything is clean and readable. Dust jacket looks quite good.
