Modest foxing to text block edges, minor foxing to endsheets, otherwise Near Fine, with firm binding, clean interior. xxi, 694 pp. Slight loss along bottom edge near binding to two early leaves (pp. v-viii).

Undated main title, with 1943 copyright, no indication of subsequent printings, suggesting a very early printing of the first edition (thus-the Manheim translation)--as per Houghton's 1937 statement, specifying that a first printing must show a date on the lower main title, and that date must match the copyright; later printings are often explicitly indicated but not necessarily.
