Former owner bookplate inside cover. NOT a former library book. Cover clean and attractive with nice, rather fresh paper label on spine that has just a touch of wear at one corner. No jacket. First printing (1922 date on title and copyright pages; no subsequent printings noted. During this time Knopf would note subsequent printings but not the first). Note: some soiling inside front cover, and both free endpapers show the foxed outline of two small rectangles, the result of acid migration from tape used to secure an old cover (which was never attached directly to book itself; this is the extent of the damage). This sleeve, meanwhile, kept the book cover in nice shape. Same or next business day ship, careful packaging, no surprises.
