Condition: Very good, I'd say. The covers have noticeable shelf wear along the bottom edge and a slight bit of fraying at the top of the spine, but the binding is tight. The pages show some light browning from age, primarily around the borders. The only extraneous markings appear to be a name written on the first blank page inside the front cover, and a small number written inside the back cover.

Published: 1940 - Triangle Books
(Original copyright 1920)
