London: Swan Sonnenschein, 1897. First edition. Hardcover. viii, 285pp, illustrated with photographs in the text. Young owner's 1898 details to half title, plus some later initials. Contents clean and unmarked, although the margins of the five pages 101-110 have been punctured with two small neatly-cut holes, with an extra tear to the edge of the last one. Original black endpapers. Boards firm. In the original binding of navy cloth with a Union Jack to the front. Slightly marked, rubbed, and bumped, spine dulled and ends fraying. A good copy. (The young early owner has also attempted to write his details on the black endpapers, but the writing can be discerned only with an angled light.)
