Very Near Fine in Very Good DJ: The Book shows the former owner's not-terribly classy bookplate at the lower corner of the front free endpaper, with the name whited-out to protect the guilty from reprisal. Else flawless, a lovely copy. The binding is square and secure; the text is clean. The DJ shows moderate wear to the extremities, with several closed tears, one not so closed at the heel of the backstrip and scant loss to chipping; mild rubbing; faint soiling to the white background field; the price ies unclipped. A near perfect copy in a moderate worn DJ. Overall, remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large Format 4to. vi, 182 pages.
