Book= near-Fine
Dustjacket= VG+ or better

Book is tight and square - excellent condition. Date written in pen at top right of first page - no other writing, marks or stamps. Unclipped dustjacket has no tears, some minor chipping at flap corners/bends, a couple of notes/marks in pen on back cover - but has been exposed to moisture which has caused some waviness: mostly to back cover, with some effect on bottom of front cover, too. I have placed this in a spare DJ protector to (successfully) minimize the appearance of this fault. The waviness on back cover can be seen if book is held at just the right angle, but most of the time they are masked by the DJ protector.

The Best from FANTASY and SCIENCE FICTION: Twelfth Series (1963) - edited by Avram Davidson. Although copyright 1961, 1962, 1963 - all stories appeared in 1962: between January and November. American reprints were complete, but the 1967 British paperback from Panther omitted the Karen Anderson storiy.
