From the inside front fly leaf: Sir Philip Brocklehurst's book was first published in 1874, in an edition said to have consisted of only 50 privately printed copies. The book is now republished by The Silk Press in a new and revised edition, limited to 500 numbered copies.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The dust jacket has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
