The binding is full blue cloth with gold foliate ornaments on the cover and spine. This is the uncommon first edition of this collection of short fictiion. The later American edition was apparently produced in substantial quantities, since Blanck cites six variant bindings [BAL 10602]. Although there is some minor wear to the board and spine extremities, as well as a tasteful bookplate on the front pastedown, this copy is otherwise in very good condition with sound hinges.; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 331 pages; One of only 1000 copies printed...the true first.
