This is a very good leather-bound hardcover. Franklin Library Signed Limited Edition 1978. This copy is very good inside and out. Inside pages are crisp and clean. Bound in red full leather with gold gilt accents and lettering, the cover is very good with light shelf wear, and some scuffing to front cover. Back cover is near fine with only a hint of shelf wear. Gray silk moire fabric endpapers show a hint of fading but are very good. Signed by author with accompanying tissue guard. Only two small spots of foxing seen on first blank page and tissue guard on signature page showing some natural tanning from age. The handsome Smyth sewn binding is tight and straight. Pages edges tipped in gold gilt. Hugged spine finished off the fine binding. Attached silk ribbon bookmark. This copy price accordingly to scuffing on front leather cover.
