Sextodecimo [17.5 cm] Full marbled calf with a red leather gilt stamped title label on the spine, and gilt ruled borders on the covers. Very good. The edges of the covers are lightly rubbed. The rear board has a thin one inch long chip in the leather. There is a previous owner's bookplate, along with a bookseller's small label on the front pastedown. The book is sturdy. The pages are clean.
