Tobit Transplanted


FIRST UK EDITION. 8vo (in 16s), pp. [xii], [362], [2 catalogue]. Green cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, single blind-ruled border to upper board. Slight lean to spine, gentle pushing to spine ends, top edge spotted, a few fox spots to endpapers and margins, POI-inscribed Book Society Ex Libris (toned) to front pastedown, spine cracked at either side of gathering “F”, but holding firm. Else, clean and bright. In “K”’s striking original dust jacket: toned and foxed, nicked and creased at extremities, reinforced on reverse at head of spine and heel of rear flap with white stickers. Still, a very good copy of an attractive edition.
