266pp.+ [10 pp of advertisements at back]. Octavo [19 cm] Original blue-gray cloth with red and black ink stamped titles and designs on the spine and front cover. Good. The edges of the covers are gently bumped and rubbed. There is a barely perceptible stain on the front cover. The spine is slightly rolled and faded. There are numerous small splits in the cloth at the ends of the spine. There is a small scuff mark on the bottom edge of the text block. Previous owner's name, along with a date on the front free endsheet. There is a thin 1 and 1/2 inch long glue stain along the front hinge, indicating that a crack in the front endsheet was probably glued. The rear endsheet is cracked along the hinge, and the text block is beginning to crack in multiple places. There are small glue stains in the inside margins of the frontispiece and title page. The pages are yellowed.
