The Elston Press, 1900. Limited edition. Hardcover. Quarto [26.5 cm] 1/4 parchment vellum with moss green paper covered boards and decorative gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The covers are subtly darkened, and the parchment spine is foxed, and a bit rubbed and soiled. The underlying boards are exposed at the top corners. The corners are bumped. There is a 1/4 inch tear in the vellum at the head of the spine. There is also a small chip in the surface of the vellum spine that affects a very small amount of the title. The pages are foxed, particularly on the pages at the beginning and end, and along the margins. The text block is just beginning to crack at the beginning. Uncut pages. Item #31506
