BAL 181, with 'WITH ILLUSTRATION.'. Blue cloth, gold spine decor, grey endpapers with brown florals. Vignette title-page inserted. Moderate general wear. No foxing. Previous owner gift notation. Spine slanted. Cloth frayed at spine ends, 85% tearing at front spine/board border, worn through at board tips. Signatures (group of sheets, folded in the middle) loosely held in. Hinges good. It is worth noting that BAL had NOT SEEN and was UNABLE TO LOCATE any copies of the so-called first printing, supposedly characterized by 'With Illustrations' [i.e. plural, no period] on the title page. BAL's second printing, with title-page in state #3, identified by 'With Illustration.' [i.e. singular, with period]. According to BAL, in state #3 the final 's' in 'Illustrations' was not erased from the title page as in state #2, but instead was routed from the title page's printing plate; a fragment remaining giving the appearance of a slovenly printed period. BAL 181. 375 pages.
