only. Gift inscription "from Aunt Florence" dated 1909. Trace of soil;
bottom edge worn else this is a near fine copy.
The dustwrapper is present:
Offwhite paper printed on the upper panel
with the same information as is on the title page. It is soiled and faded,
and lacks pieces at the head and tail of the spine and at the fold. We can
find no previous instance indicating that this title had a
dustwrapper, nor is it mentioned in the bibliographies.
First editions of the
are scarce to begin with; copies
in dustwrapper are basically unheard of.
