Hardback – publisher’s beige cloth with onlay plate to front board, titles and decoration in black to front and spine. pp [1]-340, [4] publisher’s list, including colour plates and illustrated endpapers. 8.5 x 6.25 inches approx. (213mm x 158mm). Light wear and rubbing of cloth to extremities, a touch dusty; onlay plate rubbed and marked. Bump to top edge of rear board.

Overall, showing some wear but otherwise a nicely preserved copy – attractive.
