It was impossible for him to write three lines without spilling his wit or displaying his competence as a literary craftsman."); cream cloth, 143 pages (including Notes, Bibliography), frontispiece. Gently bumped spine ends, tanning, general wear, in edgeworn dust jacket w/sun-darkened spine, chipping to corners/spine ends, small triangular piece from bottom right corner of front panel (1" along bottom edge, 3/8" up front fold).
