Book Description

First edition. Light soiling to front cover, more noticeable at extremities. Lacks first leaf (with plan of croquet ground); private library bookplate on front pastedown. With a few playing diagrams. Note: Drazin A112 (not seen)
Dealer Notes
Given the provenance (a private library in a small Ontario town), one can imagine that the plan of the croquet ground was removed for easy reference – perhaps placed on a notice board? The bibliographer had not seen a copy, therefore we assume it to be quite scarce.
