Internally clean, tight and square with faint foxing to first couple of pages. Spotting to page fore edges. 280 pages plus 7 pages ads to the rear. The advertisements to the rear include under Recent Issues "The death of Society" by Romer Wilson, and references it having won the Hawthornden Prize in the previous year. Wilson received the prize in 1921 which would date this issue at 1922. All other "recent issues" advertised date to 1921. 1922 is cited by Reginald as the first printing date but is not listed by Clute or Tuck. The 1924 editions do not have the W Collins & Sons logo to the bottom right corner of the front board as this copy does.
