Illustrated throughout with line drawings in the text. Corners worn and rounded from wear, pictorial paper label on front panel a bit chipped at edges, pencil writing on front free endpaper, some general light soiling and foxing. A good, sound copy of an attractive book.


Worldcat lists but 2 editions of this book, this one and a later reprint from the 1920's. There is only one holding for this Upcott Gill edition however, and that is in Chulalongkorn University Library in Bangkok; one might assume from this that this book is actually fairly rare.
