Octavo. Original maroon cloth, titles gilt to spine, publisher's stamp blind to sides. With the second issue jacket.
Neat pretty ownership inscription, spotting to edges and some leaves. Still a very good copy, with the binding bright and clean, in the lightly marked jacket a little faded to spine panel.
