Publisher's red cloth, spine lettered and stamped in gilt, front board lettered in gilt and stamped in gilt and black; all edges trimmed; plain endpapers. Spine gently leaning and a little concave toward the crown; backstrip faded just a shade; spine ends very softly pushed, with just a touch of wear at the edges of the joints; faint tidemark to the lower corner of the front board (affecting the "LE" in "Doyle") and a small splash near in the fore-edge margin; corners bent with a touch of wear. Binding a little shaken; text block soft with the corners just a little rounded; endpapers faintly foxed and lightly soiled; rear hinge stabilized by gluing the inner margin of the terminal leaf to the rear endpaper; minor over-opening throughout, gatherings U and X slightly sprung with their plates tipped back in; fore-edge of frontispiece stained red; two previous ownership signatures. Still, about very good with a nice overall appearance. A Haycraft Queen Cornerstone. From the collection of Bob Terry.
