The Sword in the Stone


First edition, first impression (Collins, 1938). Bumping to spine ends and corners of upper board; spine a little faded; some rubbing and marking to rear board; gift inscription to front endpaper; offsetting to front and rear endpapers with some foxing to preliminaries and final pages; edges foxed. Original dust jacket is price-clipped; spine panel is a little toned with loss to head and foot and a small hole just below the centre; abrasion to hinge on front panel; chip and a tear to top edge of front panel; few tears and chips to rear panel and to corners; tape repair to verso. A very good copy overall in its rare original dust jacket.
