New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1924. First edition. Hardcover. 358pp. Small octavo [19 cm] Red cloth covered boards with decorative gilt stamped titles. Very good. Spine ends gently bumped. There is a former owner's bookplate on the front pastedown. Tanned pages. The dust jacket is in good condition, with multiple small losses from the creased and rubbed edges. The largest loss is to the bottom of the front panel and the foot of the jacket's spine. The loss measures 6 inches wide by 1/2 of an inch deep at its deepest point. Also mildly age-toned and soiled. Despite these flaws, the jacket is still quite attractive. Item #23863
