213pp. Small octavo [19.5 cm] Light brown cloth with a silver stamped title on the spine surrounded by a black ink stamped border. Very good. The spine and covers are faded, mildly soiled, and have numerous light stains. The edges of the covers are lightly bumped and rubbed. The spine is subtly rolled back. The fore edge of the front cover is slightly moisture stained. There is minor foxing on the front endsheet along the hinge. The pages are browned. The book is sturdy. No dust jacket.
