A near-fine set of this superb private press edition, undoubtedly one of Ashendene's finest achievements.

Ford, untrimmed, the odd, minor spot to some of the endpapers and some spotting to the deckled fore-edges (outside of text block) with a few slightly encroaching onto the extreme margin, otherwise near-fine; dark green pigskin by W. H. Smith & Son, again near-fine.
