Small chip at bottom of front joint, a little rubbing, dedication leaf trimmed on the bottom edge just affecting the last line of type, but still a very good, attractive copy. Second edition, corrected, including the addition (also found in variant issues of the first edition) of Richardson's story The Indians, a Tale.
