112pp. Sextodecimo [18 cm] 1/4 brown cloth with tan and black pictorial paper over boards. Illustrated. Very good. The covers are mildly foxed and stained, and the underlying boards are exposed along the gently bumped edges. The endsheets (rear free endsheet is absent) have numerous light notations in pencil, and a couple of minor contemporary markings in pen. Else, the pages are very sporadically lightly foxed, and they are free of markings. The text block is sturdy.
With numerous charming engravings by William Jay Baker.
