This is the stated second printing, February, 1948, by the International Universities Press, of Cecil Baines translation from German to English of Anna Freud's "The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense" (196 pages). The dust jacket is flawed, with a sunned spine area, which has surface cracking to its sides, and with several spots of shallow edge wear, including some tears and missing pieces of edge material. There is further border sunning, but there are no other prominent stains. The price ($4.00) is not clipped. The lettering is clearly legible. The book itself is in very good condition, with a cover (5.5" x 8.625") that has shallow wear to the ends of the spine, which is straight, securely attached, and with unfaded lettering. The two bottom outside corners have shallow bumps. There are no stains. The blue/green cloth is unfaded. The only internal flaw is a stain to the outside edge toward the back of the book. There are no other stains or scuffs. There are no stamps or other attachments. There is no writing. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears or creases. All the text is in fine condition. The accompanying photos, of this copy, are accurate reflections of the book conditions. Bookseller Inventory # 1157
