255pp. Duodecimo [19.5 cm] Pale blue cloth over boards with black ink stamped titles and linear borders on the spine and front cover. Good plus. The spine and areas of the covers are faded, and the endsheets are unevenly darkened. The spine has a slight lean. There is a bookseller's small bookplate on the front pastedown. The text block is cracked in the middle, and the pages are toned. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with darkening, more so at the jacket's spine. The jacket is also rubbed, and has multiple small chips in the edges. There is a tiny hole in the front panel, near the bottom edge. From the collection of Berkeley book collector and letter press printer, John Ruyle, with his notes in pencil on the front free endsheet.


"The Castaway" is a story with a fortune-telling astrologer, and "Breaking a Spell" is a story of witchcraft.
