First edition, first printing. Publisher's original brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed, nicked and spine-faded dustwrapper which has a single small piece of tape to the underside at the head of the spine. Not price-clipped (8s 6d net to the upper front flap). An attractive example.
With a preface and musical settings by Daniel Jones.
