Very Good / Fair. Item #7264
London: William Heinemann, 1924. Fifth Printing of a New Impression, following the 1907 Edition. Octavo; xi; 161 pp. Thirteen plates with printed tissue guards (including frontis), all present. Illustrated dust jacket with 7/6 net price on spine; book in green cloth boards with blue stamped lettering and illustration. Jacket missing large portions along top edge, just barely encroaching on corner of illustration on front, and with loss to banner titling at top back. Jacket otherwise moderately smudged with a few smaller tears along edges and some toning to spine. Boards bumped at corners and nudged at spine ends, with some smudging to cloth and a bit. Opens easily to frontis and between a few gatherings, but binding is secure. A few pages at back with light foxing, otherwise pages and plates are clean and unmarked.
Uncommon in (albeit tattered) dust jacket.
