  • Condition
    This is in its original blue slipcase, which has light scuffs but no significant stains, no tears, and little color fade. The book itself is near fine. The cover has a few scuffs, but no stains or tears, no curl to the ends of the spine, which is straight, and no fade to the gilt lettering. The only attachment is a personal bookplate on the inside front cover. There are no other stamps and, other than the copy number and Doctorow’s signature, no writing. The binding is tight throughout the book, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears or creases. All the text is in new condition. The accompanying photos are accurate representations of the book.
