First edition. Octavo. Quarter linen over gray boards stamped in black with title and drummer illustration on front cover, title on spine. 94 pages. Eight photogravures by Sidney H. Sime, each with a tissue guard. Mild rubbing to the linen at spine head, faint corner bumps, light age-darkening to the boards, tissue guards browning.

Overall, a very clean copy, attractive copy of Dunsany's first book.
