Contemporary black half morocco over blue cloth boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers.

Ownership inscription ("Evie Woods") in blue ink to flyleaf dated 1939, a second ownership inscription ("Beatrice Wells") in black to first blank dated 1904, clean inside in the main, with a few marks.
