First Edition, Hardcover, Very Fine, Very Fine. Book. 
Hardcover first edition, first printing. Stated First Edition with printing date "03/2015" on rear jacket flap, making it a March, 2015 first printing.

Signed by Ishiguro on publisher's tipped-in sheet. Simultaneous with the UK edition by Faber and Faber, but the time zone difference makes the UK the true first edition. The book's green jacket is un-laminated, making it prone to scratches. This jacket is pristine without the "Signed First Edition" sticker present. Caution to collectors: Removing the Signed First Edition sticker can scratch off the jacket's green ink from the jacket cover. There is no sticker on this copy and the jacket is in fine condition. "It's a sad, elegiac story, one that has a tone and texture suited to its subject matter: a dreamy journey, repetitive and searching as lost memory." Lydia Millet - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review. Award History: 2016 World Fantasy Award Nominee for Best Novel (lost to The Chimes by Anna Smaill).(Sceptre)

They usually have a final edit for corrections before they are approved for pre-publication, sometimes as Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs), which are sent to editors and reviewers and can, but not always, have the final jacket art included. Proofs are fun to collect because you often see the final changes made by or for the author by their editor.
