Condición de la sobrecubierta: Poor
Volume not dated but presumed 1920s or early 1930s. Decorated red cloth-covered boards, with design inspired by Talwin Morris. Boards mildly sunned and lightly rubbed at edges, rubbing more pronounced at head and heel of spine and some mild staining on rear. Presentational prize bookplate and bookseller's blind stamp on front free endpaper. Colour frontispiece. School report from 1934 on the recipient of the book loosely inserted. Internally pages are a little tanned at edges with occasional spotting. Small loss from edge of bastard title page. Binding tight and secure. Volume nicely square. The dust jacket which is for the most part complete is in two pieces, heavily chapped and chipped at edges, creased across the front and grubby but now preserved in mylar archival-quality protector and, in our opinion, still adds to the volume. An article on the provenance and associations of this particular copy appears on our blog. N° de ref. de la librería 000101
