Siringo" on verso of title page. 8vo. 347pp, including 30-page addenda, plus 5pp of ads at back. Color frontispiece. Original red gilt-stamped pictorial cloth. Green floral-patterned endpapers. Binding rubbed with some light soiling; ink spot measuring approximately one-quarter inch in diameter to front board. Edges and extremities worn, particularly spine ends and tips of lower corners. Tender binding is cracked at title page. The preliminary leaf containing the illustration of "The Author" (the only illustration in the book aside from the frontispiece) is detached but present.

Gift inscription dated 1913 and a later owner's name in ink on front free endpaper. The binding, though somewhat tender, is square and attractive.
