12mo - 18 x 12 cm.; xx - 277 pp. Dark wine red cloth with gilt lettering on spine and front board which is blind stamped with a vine and flower motif and a gilded Marian medallion centered at the top. This is the first Canadian edition with the first published by Dodd & Mead in 1896. Illustrated with 24 black and white reproductions printed one side only on coated paper. The text block head edge is gilt, the tail edge is trimmed and the fore edge is untrimmed as issued. Previous owner's name on the front free end paper. The back joint (spine / back board) has a small snag about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom. Otherwise the book shows quite mild shelf wear, the gilding is still very bright and the interior is clean with a sound and solid binding. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted. A handsome little volume with good presentation.
