This is very nearly as tall as the paper. At 7 3/8 inches this is taller than BAL's 2162, which measured 6 9/16 and wore a two-toned green binding. This with a magazine illustration of "Slabsides" pasted to the front endpaper, and a newspaper clipping of Whitman's "Captain! My Captain! pasted to the front flyleaf, its acidic paper leaving a ghost on the facing binder's leaf. Light wear and dust soiling, spine sunned, a 1/2 inch splash mark on the front. A Good, sound copy.
