6 Chatwin, Bruce The Viceroy of Ouidah
Summit Books 1980 0671412531 / 9780671412531 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good Plus Near Fine Hardcover 8vo - over 7 
The jacket is intact and clean, save for a quarter inch tear at the top of the front cover. Not price-clipped, with little shelf wear. One corner of the book is bumped, the top front. The front/bottom of the book is lightly faded. The book looks as if someone (possibly Chatwin himself) sat on it during the course of a long train ride; slightly warped. This is a good opportunity to get a good quality, clean, tight copy of the first edition with a flaw cheaply. VG++/NF.

One very small mark on the back cover as well. NF/NF-.
