The errata slip is affixed to the front flyleaf. From the library of American linguist Karl van Duyn Teeter, with his embossed stamp to the title page and ink signature to the front flyleaf. Octavo. Original blue buckram binding, with a clarinet stamped in white on the front board. Remainder mark to the bottom edge. Some mild shelfwear to the dust jacket; otherwise very good.
