Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front board imprinted with author’s initials. With the dust jacket. Spine ends faded and a tad bumped, in dust jacket that has chips at head and tail of spine, nicked edges, chipped corners and a punched hole to front flap to remove the price. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper reads: “Flora J. Goodyear. From John. Xmas. 1938.” A very good copy.
