220pp. Octavo [19 cm] Blue tweed paper covered boards with blue ink stamped titles and designs on the spine and front cover. Illustrated endsheets. Very good. The spine is gently rolled, and the edges of the covers and spine are lightly bumped and rubbed. The pages are a little browned. The dust jacket is in good condition only. Very mildly yellowed, creased and soiled. There are several larger abraded patches on the bottom third of the front panel. The edges are heavily chipped and have multiple small losses. The jacket also has numerous closed tears. The longest closed tears measure 3/4 of an inch long. There are several tape stains along the edges. These stains are more noticeable on the internal, non-visible side. There is an old price sticker on the front inside flap.
