Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. A few very faint marks to cloth, mild partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the spine-tanned and dust soiled but remarkably intact jacket with two very small sections of loss from the top edge (one 365mm and one 240mm) and otherwise only very light rubbing to ends and corners.
