Description

This is a very good copy of the First English Edition, in the rare dust jacket, which is unprice-clipped and only slightly darkened with age, with light edge-wear and a few closed short tears, front and rear. The cloth is clean and fresh, the gilt lettering is bright, the binding is crisp and tight. The corners are very slightly turned but still sharp. The contents are fine and unfoxed, with a vintage bookplate on the front pastedown. A very handsome copy.
