The silver ink used on this binding is notorious for flaking off. Very few copies have been noted without some loss.

Endpapers:

A monochrome version of the Frank Papé map of Poictesme. This is the the first publication of this map, which was also used for endpapers for the American and English illustrated editions (SS-D1 (P) and SS-E1 (P)). This map was also issued separately as a broadside (Hall G2) (see image above).

Dust jacket / Slipcase:

Issued in an unmarked tissue dust jacket and a lightweight cardboard slipcase covered with black paper. The slipcase is unmarked except for the copy number handwritten in silver ink at the base of the spine (see image above).
