London: Chatto & Windus, 1900. First U.K. Edition. Hardcover. 414p; 32p advertisements. A golden-yellow cloth hardcover book in acceptable condition. The edges of the spine are wearing through, having a crackly appearance (possibly insect damage) which penetrates through to the gutters of the endpapers. However, the binding is still quite secure for normal handling. Surfaces chafed, with a few tiny rubbed-through spots. Some foxing inside, and advertisement pages tanned. Text unmarked. Item #173997
The first UK edition, first state, with advertisements dated June 1900.
