Montreal Dawson Bros. 1876 First Edition Decorative Cloth Good+ with no dust jacket Illustrated by Notman, Wm. (phot.) 
Decorated green cloth, with a gilt owl on the front. The books looks "very good", but some splitting at the top of the spine, and the inner hinges are cracking, although the book is tight.

I understand this is common problem with this book (if we can use the term for such an uncommon book), as these were evidently assembled by hand, and mistakes were made.
