Might be worth someone dropping a line to this unfortunate vendor. (not me - I wouldn't know how to express it tactfully).

Yes - it was the fourth impression (May 1958)

Yes, I think the seller is confusing the lid of the box (which has a label) with the slipcase. I agree with the consensus so far; AFAIK the book came only in a box, with, as Trotter notes, a tissue guard (sadly mine doesn't have this, but as it cost me only a tenner in a remainder shop many years ago, I'm not complaining).

I wonder whether this slipcase might be one that a previous owner had made privately?

Thanks, I did not know that the first impression dust-wrapper does not have the impression number on the dust-jacket spine.

Does anyone know which impression they stopped putting the impression number on the spine?
