This is a very good copy. The wrapper, illustrated by Edmond L. Warre, is generally bright and well presented. It suffers from sparce spots of browning, moderate discolouration at the spine, and general signs of wear at the corners, and at the spine. It has been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and are tightly bound to the spine. The rough-cut side text block is bright and generally white, with light areas of yellowing. Overall, this is a very good copy with highly attractive illustrations.
