Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front board lettered in gilt and decoratively stamped in white. Backstrip faintly dulled; joints and board edges lightly worn; stamped illustration on front board partially rubbed away. Hinges starting, but still secure; some over-opening throughout, mostly between gatherings; tissue guard on frontis potentially remounted. Very good. Housed in a chemise and custom clamshell case.
