Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. Boards a little rubbed and marked, spine rolled, spotting to edges and very occasionally to the contents, which are toned. A very good copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with a few short closed tears and a chip from the head of the spine panel very slighty affecting the title.
