A thick, oblong quarto (brick-sized), in its original light-blue cloth, with still-bright gilt-design ( a 45-star American flag) and gilt-lettering at the front panel. Tight, solid and VG. A 2 1/2" closed tear (with accompanying creasing) at both the pictorial frontispiece and the title page, and very light scuffing to the rear panel.
