Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt on black ground, black top-stain. With the dust jacket. Spine and edges of boards faded, spine titles oxidised and chipping, browning from inserted material to front endpapers. A very good copy in the rubbed and tanned jacket with a closed tear down the length of the spine repaired with tape to the verso and the upper flap cleanly separated from the rest of the jacket.
