See below the description from the dustwrapper flaps and the review from the rear of the dustwrapper.
The first few gatherings appear to have used a different quality paper, which has resulted in the closed edges of pages presenting a slightly different shade from the remaining gatherings.
The book was also published in paperback, but all editions are now out of print.
