191pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Light blue and black paper covered boards. Good. The edges of the covers are rubbed. The top edges of the covers are very subtly moisture stained, and the spine is slightly rolled. There is a former owner's embossed stamp on the half title page. The dust jacket is in poor condition. The jacket has been torn in half, and there is a large loss from the paper of the spine. There are multiple small losses from the edges.
