Octavo, two volumes: xxvi, 365 p. + v, 339 p. with the publisher's ads at the rear. Original brown cloth binding, with gilt titles and black and blind-stamped decorations. Some sparse pencil marginalia, with erasures to the each front flyleaf. Bookplate and a small address label to each front pastedown. The spines are darkened just a touch, with some general shelfwear.
