233pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Green cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good. The extremities are very gently bumped and rubbed. There are several tape stains along the edges of the covers. Slight spine slant. There are a couple of insignificant stains on the fore edge of the text block. Four small tape stains on the free endsheets. There is a tiny numerical notation in pen on the top edge of the front free endsheet. The dust jacket is in good condition only, with rubbing, a heavily sunned spine, and a large strip of fading on the front panel. The edges are just a little chipped.
