Published in 1922 by Humphrey Milford. Very gently read. Neat ownership inscription in fountain pen to the ffep which has some toning from a newspaper clipping (?) and two small stains to show. Same toning to the verso of the rear fly leaf. Occasional small check mark, underlined word and short bits of marginalia to show, primarily to the rear of the text. Otherwise the interior is clean. Bright gilt titles to spine. Blue pebbled cloth boards are gently bumped and rubbed to extremities with light shelfwear to show. Without dustjacket (as issued?). Laid in is typed two page addendum dated 16, December, 1949. One of the best and most comprehensive examples of the process of nation-making.
