332pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Rebound in sturdy brown cloth with a gilt stamped title on the spine. New endsheets and flyleaves, however the original free endsheets and flyleaves are bound in. Very good. The edges of the covers are gently bumped and rubbed, and the spine is subtly rolled. There are notes in pencil on the original front free endsheet. The endsheets and flyleaves are foxed, and there is very occasional light foxing here and there throughout the text. The pages are mildly browned, and the binding threads are sporadically visible in the inside margins of the pages. The book is sturdy.
