First Edition, with “Published May, 1936” to the copyright page. 1,037pps. Gently read, text block is solid. Blue titles and device to the spine and front board. About thirty very small, blue ink short lines (under 5mm) placed sporadically throughout the text block. Handful of small, circular “foxed” like spots, pp.181- 192 have short 1.5cm tears to the bottom edge at the spine (there are also a few tiny nicks and chips to page edges here and there), 3cm x 1cm spot of discolouration at the gutter of pp.795, faint dampstain from pp.900 to the end of the text block only becoming visible with about 30 pages left. Boards are a bit bumped and rubbed to extremities with a small ding to the bottom right corner of the front board; head and tail are moderately rubbed and creased with some fraying to show. Thin 3cm ink line to the spine, title unaffected. Light foxing to show to the front board, less so to the rear board. Without dustjacket. Photos available upon request. This volume presents better than this detailed description might suggest…no surprises.
