The book is one of a handful to feature its original dust jacket

Although the jacket displays tearing and paper loss, its rarity makes it desirable in any condition. In 2009, a copy in exceptional condition made $180,000 at Bonhams New York.

Another copy in a similar condition to the present example made $46,875 at Heritage Auctions in October 2013.
