CONDITION: Original tan paper covered boards, black cloth spine, gilt lettering spine, black lettering front, b/w photo tipped-on front cover (packing up Dawson moraine). The book was issued without a dust jacket. No examples have a dust jacket. The book is in fine condition but the tipped-on cover photograph has part of the the uppermost 1cm of the photo lifted off. This was likely a production error because the book is clearly unread (like new) with many of the pages being unopened (needing to be cut open at the edges). This example was never read. There is no writing or marking on any pages. No foxing. Basically new condition. Price: $350.
