The title on the spine reads from bottom to top, as opposed to the more conventional position of the words reading from top to bottom. 479 pages. Text clean. Sewn pages. Slight crack at hinge on the last page, but no compromise of the overall structure or soundness of the book. A gem. Our book number 19030.
