Condition: Very Good


A rare first edition. The book has been rebound, and the boards are a touch edge worn, but remain strong and square, with bright gilt to the spine. Internally, there is an ex-libris plate on the front pastedown. There is a previous owner's signature on the title page along with some faint pencil markings and a previous retailer's stamp marking. The top corners of the pages are slightly creased and there is some marking on the last few pages, but the body remains clear, clean and legible. The binding is secure. In lovely condition for its age indeed! JK View more info
