On the Staircase by Frank Swinnerton
293 pages. No dust jacket. Red cloth with black lettering to front and spine. The pages remain clear with some light tanning and foxing throughout and some occasional marking which is much heavier towards the endpapers. The binding is good and all pages are secure. The boards are light to moderately marked with moderate edge wear, bumping to corners, wear and some crushing and fraying to spine. The book is forward-leaning.
