Black 1/4 cloth, gray paper over boards, short title stamped in gilt on spine panel, clearly a later rebinding, likely dating to early 20th century. Text block is laid paper, with deckled edges. 66 pp. Title page moderately soiled, contents otherwise generally clean. Both flyleaves (not original to publication) are partially detached. Boards show rubbed edges with exposed corners, with frayed spine extremities. Binding functional though not especially attractive, contents deserve better and would be much improved by rebinding. Exceptionally scarce. View more info
