New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1874. Hardcover. Good / No Dustjacket. Item #066965
Pages clean except for prior owners' names penned faintly on the first blank page and on the title page, a few scattered handling creases and smudges, mild toning in the margins, and two drip spots on the heel edge intruding slightly into margins. Binding is secure despite some relaxation of the stitching and somewhat shaken hinges; full cloth cover is faded along the spine, water-stained at the bottom left front and top right rear, softened and frayed at spine ends and corners, and scratched and smudged on front and back, with some small patches of finish loss, yet remains overall sound, with modestly dimmed gilt titles and decoration at front and spine. 434pp w/ index of names.
