Book nine of the Wheel of Time saga. Stated first edition with correct full number line sequence. No writing, marks, underlining, or bookplates. No remainder marks. Spine is tight and crisp. Boards are flat and true, and the corners are square. Dust jacket is not price-clipped and shows little if any shelf wear. Front free endpaper is torn in places from the binding but remains attached. The flyleaf opposite the title page lays flat allowing the binding to show. Book also has a small (1/8") tear along the bottom spine extreme. This is a very unique copy in that a PUBLISHER'S ERROR has resulted in the map on the front endpapers being bound upside down! A beautiful copy despite it's flaws and very desirable in light of the upside-down map. This highly collectible, very good, first edition/first printing copy is protected with an archival mylar dust jacket cover. Satisfaction guaranteed!
