First edition, first printing. Original burgundy cloth with silver titles to the spine, in the Stead illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth and titles bright. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very good or better rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has several short closed tears with associated creasing at the panel edges without loss. There is one small piece of tape to the underside at the base of the spine. Not price-clipped (8s. 6d net to the front flap). An attractive example.
