London, Newnes, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Currey's state A, with gilt work to upper board and spine, and black endpapers [the earliest state thus]. An ex-library indicated by a sole W.H. Smith library plate to front pastedown, endpapers splitting to the spine. Spine tips worn, spine toned, foreedge a little foxed. Not bad overall though.
