164pp. Duodecimo [18 cm] Blue cloth with a black ink stamped title on the spine, and black ink stamped decorative designs on the spine and front cover. Very good. The spine is subtly rolled, and the spine ends and edges of the covers are gently rubbed and bumped. There are numerous very light smudge marks on the covers. Tanned pages. The book is sturdy. In a very good dust jacket, with light rubbing. The jacket's spine is sunned. The edges have multiple small closed and open tears. The largest open tears are in the paper at the ends of the spine, and measure roughly 1/4 of an inch wide by just under 1/2 of an inch deep. There are a couple of insignificant stains on the rear panel.
