287pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Light aquamarine cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good. Mildly bumped and rubbed at the spine ends and along the edges of the covers. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with subtle age-toning and rubbing. The edges have a handful of shallow open tears, and there are two closed tears in the top edge along the folds of the flaps. The longest tear measures 1 and 1/2" long. There is a very tiny piece of tape backing one of the tears.
