New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1918. Paperback. 12mo. Printed wrappers. Near fine. Lightly evenly age toned, as expected in a production of this era -- but overall an unheard-of superb copy of this cheaply printed text. None of the chipping or edge tears invariably that usually plagues this title. Item #32940
