48 pages of text. Original printed paper-covered boards are worn and soiled. The spine has been replaced with modern black linen. In addition to the original endpapers, new pastedowns and endpapers have been added. The text has minor soiling scattered throughout. A 2nd or later printing of the first edition, printed in the same year as the 1st printing (has the publisher's logo on the title page, but not on the colophon). An attractive copy, with all of the necessary repairs performed to carry this otherwise fragile survivor properly into the future. The first chapter is titled "Essay On the Advantages of Sleeping Alone" to which the author saw fit not to pen another word.
