Book condition: although the boards are in a worn state, with spine edges cracked, the text is in a remarkably clean condition. The end-papers are foxed, with the spotting extending in to page 1 (16 pages of dedication, contents and introduction preceding), and by page 12 the spotting has cleared, with a relatively clean run right through to page 353 where a few spots once again make their appearance (and barring a few finger-stains and occasional foxing). The binding is original, and tight, bottom edge uncut, and one wormhole on bottom edge, extending from p.101 to p.144 and only affecting the margin. The collector will want to have the volume rebound, and the text-block of this copy provides a good, firm foundation for this.
