Evidence of Readership: A previous reader has marked specific passages in pencil through perhaps a third of the text and left a scrap of paper with notes on word choices tucked in at back.
Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
NSTC 0401732. Half black roan in imitation of morocco and burgundy paper–covered boards, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; rubbed with some loss of paper, waterstaining along bottom edges of boards only.
