"Come through the magic door with me, and sit here on the green settee, where you can see the old oak case with its untidy lines of volumes. Smoking is not forbidden. Would you care to hear me talk of them? Well, I ask nothing better, for there is no volume there which is not a dear personal friend, and what can a man talk of more pleasantly than that? The other books are over yonder, but these are my own favourites - the ones I care to re-read and to have near my elbow. There is not a tattered cover which does not bring it mellow memories to me." Previous owner's name in ink on front pastedown, very light browning to endpapers, moderate browning to title page, book is slightly cocked, light fading to spine and rear hinge, one small corner bump and one slight edge bump, light wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine - includes tiny tear, light edge wear.
