Description

This is a very good copy of the First English edition in the rare and extremely handsome dust jacket which is unclipped but somewhat darkened with age along the spine. There are tiny fractional losses to three of four jacket corners, as well as fractional loss at the spine head and edgewear at the tail. The binding is tight, the cloth is clean and only modestly faded. The contents are fine, with a vintage ink inscription on the front free endpaper, which has toned a bit, and some very faint, scattered foxing to the prelims and fore-edges.
The book is preserved in a very handsome linen solander with leather spine label.
