515pp. Octavo [21 cm] Rebound in 3/4 maroon leather with marbled paper over boards, raised bands, a gilt tooled spine, and single gilt ruled borders on the covers. Top edge gilt; other edges deckled. New endsheets and flyleaves. Very good. The spine is rolled, and the boards are ever so slightly bowed.
