Hardcover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Very Good. Good-VG Book 
Pale salmon cloth, lettered in teal blue. Printed from British plates and thus apparently not conforming to Dutton's designation method, with undated main title, "Published 1951" on copyright page with no mention of additional printings. xxii,265 pp. Dampstaining has resulted in dye lightening on both covers toward edges, extending generally about 1 1/2" onto covers and lightly affecting spine panel as well, but not extending to interior, which is clean and intact, with firm binding, secure hinges. Former owner's initials/date at top front flyleaf corner, otherwise unmarked. Green dust jacket shows 1/4" strip of loss across most of top front edge, with chip at head of spine and rubbed heel, tanned flap folds and top edges, otherwise only light shelf wear, now in mylar. Sturdy reading copy with entirely cosmetic faults. Very scarce. 042097
