287pp. Quarto [24.5 cm] Grayish blue cloth covered boards with a dark blue ink stamped title and vignette on the spine, and an illustrated paper label on the front cover. Good only. The extremities are very rubbed, scratched and stained. The majority of the staining is on the fore edge of the text block and on the rear board (there is a thin 3 inch long dark mark on the rear board). The underlying boards are heavily exposed along the edges. A previous owner has scratched his name into the front board. The spine is rolled and faded. There are several cracks in the front endsheet along the hinge, and the hinges are going. There is a small partial price sticker on the front pastedown, and there is a small abraded area on the ownership page. Browned pages. There are very occasional light stains on the pages. The text block is fragile.
