New York: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1928. First edition. xii, 164 pp. Patterned paper boards over purple cloth backstrip, printed labels on front and spine, with the dust jacket. Some spotting and rubbing to backstrip, interior a little musty. The jacket shows some edgewear and browning, slight soiling to the rear panel, but overall clean and complete.
