382pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Red cloth with gilt stamped titles and an illustrated paper label on the front cover. Good. The spine and covers are rubbed, and the spine is sloped. The spine ends and corners are gently bumped, and the cloth at the spine ends is slightly frayed. The front board is barely perceptibly stained. The endsheets are darkened and foxed, and there is moisture stain on the top edge of the rear pastedown. The stain is 3 and 1/2" wide by 3/4" deep. The pages are browned. The first UK edition from 1909 is cited in the Bleiler checklist.
