Brown 1/4 cloth, dark gray paper covered boards, lettered in black on front cover and in gilt along spine panel, patterned endpapers, deckled edges. 60 pp., frontis. portrait after G. F. Watts. Mere hints of rubbing at corners and spine extremities, virtually as issued. Illus. book plate of Frank L. Hadley mounted on front pastedown. Gray paper dust jacket is mildly soiled/toned; a former owner has trimmed the rear flap to provide matching paper to restore the spine panel, with the original panel (toned and with loss) pasted over top, a clever repair but one requiring mention in any assessment of condition; now in archival mylar. Scarce original edition.
