Book Condition: Good
2d ed. [First thus; the true first edition was published in folio form with etchings by another artist.] , 9-1/4”x6”, full vellum binding, gilt titles and decorations, untrimmed pages. 60 pp. [2 advt] Woodcut decorations and ornaments in the text plus eight etchings by Tristam Ellis. Good condition. The covers are soiled with some spotting and chipping; very lightly warped -- though less than commonly found. [A publisher’s slip notice inside states that the book is prone to warping. Losse at the front joint. Prior owner’s bookplate inside front cover. Text block is clean and bright; some of the tissue guards for the etchings are creased. The book is notoriously prone to wear and, despite these defects’ it is one of the more attractive copies we have seen.
