Large 12mo, illustrated, 200 numbered pages plus 16 plates of drawings, and 40 pages of advertisements for other Chatto & Windus books appended. In original decorative binding, which is slightly soiled , and spine sunned, otherwise nice and tight. Pages 177-200 evidently damaged in some pyrotechnic mishap have been replaced by professionally lithographed signatures from Bayport Printing of Minnesota.

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. This is a function of the ABE program rather than a reflection of our real shipping costs. Most of our more popular books weigh more than this (e.g. Pyrotechnica Publications items). If your book order is heavy or oversized, we WILL contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. Overseas shipments cannot be shipped via surface mail (the 21-36 business days option listed in the ABE shopping cart) because there is no longer a surface mail option from the United States. So, please do not select this option if you are outside of the USA. Only insured air mail is available for these overseas orders.
