Very Good. (Mine is c1916, but Illustrator is clearly stated to be Joseph B. Guzie, not "Harry L. Smith" as per the catalog [a name not even mentioned under any capacity in book]. An even smaller nit, subtitle is "SleepY-Time Tales" [my cap on the catalog-omitted "Y"]. ) Book Tour: NO DJ (given 1916, did it have one? ). Board outer corners, 1/8"-1/4" wear/toe-in, incl. cloth holes to 1/8". Top/bottom spine, 1/8" wear. Dark blue cloth not faded or darkened at spine, but green text print is likely faded (still readable); also, wear showing along spine/faces margins. Board edges, no dings affecting boards but some cloth color wear, and a few cloth holes to 1/8". Cover faces have some dirt spots and shelf wear. Green graphics & text on front likely faded (less than spine). Page edges tanned, with a few dirt & wear spots. Page faces lightly tanned, clean except 1st/last sheet & inside covers have a few dirt dots, and p1 has felt-penned-crossed-out words (probably a brief gift dedication w/ names, possibly date, can't make it out), and a smallo (1/2") retailer label. Page corners crisp except at covers. Fast, Professional Shipping w/ Tracking. "Best Descriptions, Toughest Grading! "
