Title page and copyright page dated 1930. Unpaginated. In good condition. Covers are a bit rubbed, with wear along the edges. Corners of boards are gently bumped and paper is split just a bit there. Spine beginning to crack in places along rear hinge. Lettering remains bright. Binding is strong. Pages are lightly toned from age.
