294pp. Octavo [19 cm] Black cloth spine with decorative red paper covered boards, and a yellow and black printed paper title label on the spine. The top edge has the publisher's yellow stain. Very good. The spine ends and edges of the covers are rubbed and bumped. The top edge of the text block is lightly foxed, and the pages are toned. The dust jacket is in good condition, with chipping, and several losses from the edges. The largest loss is from the paper at the head of the spine, and measures 1 and 3/4" wide by 1/2" deep. The jacket is also darkened, and mildly rubbed and soiled. Bleiler CFL. Bleiler 427i.
With two fantasies, "Simple Simon," and "The Man from Kilsheelan."
