Publisher's full brown cloth, front board and spine decoratively stamped in black and gilt. With the very rare printed dust jacket - BAL apparently never saw a copy in jacket. Jacket spine chipped and sunned, with some loss of text, some edgewear, chipping and thumbsoiling to jacket panels, some minor edgewear to binding, front free endpaper with a short marginal tear. Still, a near fine copy in the very scarce dust jacket. From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.
