This is a handsome hardcover book without a jacket and has been printed by the Astolat Press.. The book has blue-grey paper covered book board covers with a white vellum spine. The title on the cover and the spine is in gilt with a decorative acorn and oak branch. The acorn is repeated within, a motif of the publishers' Oakleaf Series. The essays are hand set and printed in black and red. The first letter is elaborately illustrated on quality paper. The book has a tight binding. The beveled edged book covers are clean, the spine has a touch of soil and there is a tiny spot of wear on the uper front corner. The end papers are discoloring from offset of glue. The pages are very clean. The edges are untrimmed. The top edges are gilt. There is a former owner gift note to a General Bray by an indeciperable name with a place and date of Sydney Dec 09.; 12mo; 25 pages
