Description

Hardcover, maroon cloth lettered in gold on spine and cover. 227 pages. Translated into modern English verse by Frank Ernest Hill. Illustrated with vignette and full page block drawings by Hermann Rosse. Stated first edition. No previous ownership marks. Fading to type on title page, affecting publisher’s name. Other factors of age are darkening and mild foxing to top edge and very dulled spine lettering [that on cover still bright]. A clean, square, unmarked copy. Near very good.
