317; 12pp. Small octavo [19 cm] Red cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Good only. The extremities are gently rubbed and stained. The spine is rolled and mildly darkened. There are also small losses from the cloth at the ends of the spine. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges. There is a little darkening to the top edge of the text block, and the endsheets are a little glue stained. The text block is cracked at the title page, and again at the center, however the book is still quite sturdy. Subtly yellowed pages.
