Publisher's blind-stamped brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine, original yellow endpapers. A Fine copy with no restoration or work done, completely unsophisticated and desirable thus.

Contents clean with hardly any foxing, a few slightly proud signatures but binding sturdy. A truly excellent copy of the classic nature study. Item #140939540
