1 MacDonald, Ross Sleeping Beauty
New York Knopf 1973 0-394-48474-6 / 9780394484747 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full blue cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Red topstain. Octavo. 271pps. Stated First Edition. There is slight fading along the top edge of the cloth and a small, unobtrusive pen-line atop the textblock. Also, several pages have been dog-eared. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is rubbed and has a couple of touches of dampstaining to its interior (slightly visible to the exterior); the original price is intact.
