This treasure is one of 3 (Vol II) and has 292 pages + hard covers. The perfect binding is enhanced by the leather spine which is imprinted with gold lettering and embossing. The leather of the spine also goes in approximately 1" into the covers (front and back), with the corners also bound with leather to make sure that the cover stayed in tact
The book is in excellent shape for it's age. The pages themselves have very little markings on them...and there appears to be some minor stains on a few pages, but nothing to hurt the integrity of the book. The front and back covers are a bit worn with age.
Anyone wishing an original printing of a novel will appreciate this book
