A good first edition of this scarce title. The binding is in good condition with no cracking to the hinges. Endpapers good. Front inside board has a presentation slip paste to it and is dated 1914. There is a small picture of a sailor pasted to the front endpaper as can be seen in the photos above. All pages and plates present and in good clean order except for one plate which has a 'pinkish' stain to it (again see images provided). Overall a good first edition.
