SIGNED. 304pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] Maroon leather with gilt stamped titles and blind stamped decorative patterns on the spine and covers. Decorative endsheets. Good. Ex-library. The front cover is cracked along the joint. The edges of the covers are rubbed. The spine is faded. The leather at the spine ends is chipped. There are a couple of closed tears and a chip in the leather of the spine. The tears measure 2 to 2 1/2 inches. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges. Despite these flaws, the book is sturdy. There is a library label on the front pastedown. The pages are mildly browned. A sheet of lined paper with contemporary notations has been mounted to the rear pastedown.
Alfred Osmond's bookplate is on the verso of the front free endsheet. Presented by the author to Brigham Young University on the front flyleaf. Flake 6020. Mormon poetry.
