Publisher's green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front decorated in dark blue, red, and gilt, with gilt sky; top edge of text block trimmed.

Bookseller penciling at endpapers. Text block very softly dulled with age, particularly along edges; occasional faint foxing, spot-staining, evidence of handling or dog-earing scattered throughout interior. Very good.
