Sold as very nice original reading copy only. Octavo, 7 3/4" tall, 249 pages, black boards. A very good minus, clean, sturdy, hard cover first edition with moderate shelf wear and rubbing at the top and bottom edges of the spine; hinges and binding solid, paper lightly yellowed, BUT this was a private lending library copy from a Connecticut bookshop with a marking to that effect on the front free endpaper, and the dust jacket cover has left tape stains on the endpapers. Still a better than average copy of a scarce title. In a good, slightly trimmed dust jacket which (sadly) has been taped around all edges, but still has the original price. There are means of removing the particular tape (masking tape) not available to this bookseller. Bookseller Inventory #
