Duodecimo [19 cm] Orange and black illustrated paper over boards. White and black pictorial endsheets. Very good. Mildly rubbed at the extremities. The underlying boards are peeking through at the tips of the corners. There are small losses from the head and the foot of the spine, and there are several cracks along the front joint. The longest crack is 1 and 1/2" long. There is an ink stamp on the last page of the text, and the pages are tanned.


Ten yarns and a preface, reading backwards (the book begins with yarn 10 and ends with the preface). Yarns, some in dialect, and harbor front tales gathered from newspaper appearances. A curious book.
