Publisher's black morocco shelf back and corners over marbled boards ruled in gilt. The spine is lettered and delicately decorated in gilt. Pale yellow coated endpapers. Significant rubbing to the covers, slightly bumped corners and head and foot of the spine, edges display some bumping, barely noticeable cracking to the front joint, some moisture damage to the paper edges, hinges just beginning to crack but still sound. Altogether a very good copy.
