1st Edition. Blanck's binding state A with about 5 5/8'' between Webster and Twain on the spine. State B is about 5 3/8''. No priority. Collation includes a flyleaf at the back. This is noted because Blanck states, ''In some copies there is a flyleaf at the back.'' BAL 3440. Merle Johnson notes that some copies have red coloring on the cover while some have a dullish orange. This copy has the orange.
A very nice copy of this hard to find book. Light soiling to the boards. Corners are lightly bumped. The spine is just a little darkened. Some tiny nicks to the cloth at the spine ends. Gilt and colors on the cover are bright. Gilt and colors on the spine are just a little dulled, but still nice. The binding is sound with no cracks or loose pages.
