This is a very good hardcover with accompanying slipcase. 1944 Illustrated Modern Library. This copy is very good inside and out. The pages only have light moderate tanning from age. NOTE: only marking seen is previous owners name neatly written inside front cover. No foxing throughout. The blue hardcover boards with the famous Modern Library logo and title are also very good with only very light shelf wear corners/edges. The accompanying slipcase is good, it is showing shelf wear but the illustrated pastedown front of slipcase still present and good. Smaller typical Modern Library hardcover, crown octavo book size or 5" x 8" with 264 pages.
