Copyright 1888, but definitely a post-1899 printing. Crisp, clean pages except for a gift note at the front free endpaper and moderate age-toning throughout; square, secure binding; red cloth cover shows some softening and rubbing at spine ends and a few shallow scratches at the lower left of the pastedown front illustration. The dustjacket bears toning around all edges, a pair of small open tears as well as toning along the spine and some material loss at spine ends. nicks and tears at the top and bottom edges and along the foreedges, and a small, dark spot at the lower rear, but remains overall sound, now protected in a clear sleeve. 330pp. + advertisements at rear.
