This shorty format $.25 cover priced Pocket Book is quite nice. It has a 1957 copyright date with a 1959 printing date for Pocket's edition.
There is really no chipping on either cover and the spine has maybe four or five chips and some light wear along top and bottom edge.
The book has dyed-red page edges, which is a nice touch that you don't see on too many books today. There is some spotting on the top edge, looks like it could have been mildew. Still a good deal of gloss on the covers. Inside on both covers, there is some 'rusting'. Again, likely that this book, although you would almost think unread, was kept for a time in a place where it was a bit damp.
The orginal owner stamped their name on the inside title page and on the inside back cover.
All in all, a nice, tight, square gem with good cover art.
