vii, 215 pages, with advert leaf at rear for English Men of Letters series. Pleasing association copy: Gosse to Harrison, dated 1905. Three bookplates: monogram / Harrison Beauregard Donly & Emma Brook Donly / and library plate acknowledging gift from Mrs. Margaret Donly Thayer. University blind-stamp to title page, over which appears their withdrawal stamp. Interior is clean and free of marks (see scan of rear pastedown for evidence of library pocket removal); hinges and binding are secure. Top edge gilt. The sunned backstrip of spine is not flexible, and upon opening the volume it lets out a crunchy sound of stiff cloth on cloth. Cloth is split along rear hinge but not along front. No doubt a liberal application of paste some time past has bequeathed this state.
