Board tips lightly shelfworn, cloth at heel of spine crushed with a couple of minor tears. Price-clipped jacket shows moderate chipping, especially at head of front panel and spine. One open tear near base of spine panel. Light fading to spine text, general browning.
A very good copy in a good (+) jacket of the first of Renault's novels set in ancient Greece, and her second book to prominently feature a theme of homosexual love.
