Inscriptions as above, title-page with small initials inked next to publication information. Fly-leaves browned, with edges chipped; pages age-toned with occasionally a pinhole piercing and in one leaf a tiny burn-hole, with neither obscuring sense. => A solid, clean, very usable copy.  (41359)   Please RESHELVE This.
