NY: Henry Holt, (1911). 4th printing.

Some dust soiling, and light fading to cloth, but basically a fine copy in a slightly chipped pictorial dust jacket, with a chip from the upper front panel, some shelf wear and short tears to edges, but about very good otherwise. The only indication that this is a 4th printing is that it is printed on the dust jacket; there is no evidence of which printing it is within the book itself.
