First edition, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with blind stamped titles and decoration to the upper board and gilt titles to the spine. A very good copy, the binding firm with a little rubbing and bumping at the extremities. The upper edge of the boards and the spine with a touch of fading and with a few light marks. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages. The pages with a little spotting to the prelims, more so to the closed text block edge are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The front inner hinge is cracked but holding. All in all a decent example in original condition, of this cheaply produced volume which went through several reprints the first year of publication. Scarce thus.
