First edition second impression published by George Routledge, London, in 1939. Provenance: Tennell, Bombay, August 1944 (deals inked to flyleaf); free from further prior ownership inscriptions and permanent markings to the text. Although interior condition is overall very good, book displays minor signs of use or age — occasional touch of foxing / discolouration to a few pages and end-papers — consistent with a printed object of this vintage. All vii preliminary pages + 312 pp main text (index at rear) are complete and otherwise correct.
