FIRST EDITION, second printing (6-line errata), 8vo, pp. [iv], 384. Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine divided by raised bands between gilt rules, red morocco label. A little light spotting. Faint splashmarks to front board, a touch of rubbing to extremities, front joint just cracking at head. A list of page numbers in an early hand to rear pastedown, pencil additions to the errata leaf and the errata corrected in the text in pencil or ink.


A very pleasant copy of Todd's 'B' issue, technically really a second edition, as the text was significantly reset between the two printings.
