Product description

Small thin pocket book size edition with tan colured full soft leather binding, the front has the title and author in gilt text with a decorated surround in darker embossed finish, the spine and back are plain unembelished leather. The corners are deliberatedly rounded. Probably due to use or age, the front cover tends to curl up slightly. There is some wear around the edges but if anything it enhances the appearance of the leather.

The endpapers are of pink marbled effect, the front has a small blue bookseller's sticker at the bottom near the spine, the rear is unmarked. The second front endpaper has been torn out causing some damage the the ffe, the page is missing. There are no inscriptions. The paper is rough, probably hand-made. Only the top ends have been trimmed and covered in gilt, the othe two edges are untrimmed, leaving a ragged appearance.

The text is illustrated with some small stamp sized monochrome illustrations, each of which is on a seperate pice of paper that is pasted on the page.

Overall this scarce item is in remarkably good condition for its age but is marred by the missing page, hence the reduced price.
