Note: usually seen in publisher’s cloth with dustwrapper, this copy probably a special or de-luxe edition by the publisher – other copies seen or noted in the same quarter leather binding (with different leather/cloth colour) and the floral endpapers.

Spine a little discoloured/sunned to spine; leather a little rubbed to spine head; cloth rubbed and worn to extremities, a litle marked in places. Page-block foxed/spotted to edges; occasional foxing to pages but generally clean throughout.

Overall, a nice, tight copy – attractive.
