Pages 305/306 and 307/308 have a triangular shaped 1" deep chip from the upper edge of the top margin neither of which have an affect on the print. Without a dust jacket (if it ever had one). A 16mo measuring 7" tall by 4 1/2" deep containing 316 numbered pages followed by a blank leaf the rear light yellow end sheets and then by twelve pages of ads by the publisher. These ads represent State A with the misprint of "A Poom" which was corrected to read "A Poem" in State B on the second page of the ads. (Pye 100 Most Significatn Books Published by Ticknor and Fields p. 47) The points cited in BAL 12112 indicate that this is the second printing of the first edition as evidenced by the word "heron" on page 27.
