New York: Crown, 1942. First Edition. Thick octavo. Black cloth hardcover; dustjacket; 1072pp. A slightly worn copy, with aging to boards and some flaking to gilt titles on spine; front hinge slightly pulled; just VG. In the original dustwrapper, unclipped (priced $3.00 on front flap), slightly rubbed and worn but still quite presentable. A book prone to wear; this is an unremarkable example.
