The Naval Genius of George Washington, Knox, Dudley
5 Knox, Dudley The Naval Genius of George Washington
Boston Houghton Mifflin 1932 Limited Edition hardcover 

#242 of 550 copies. Very good or better, owner bookplate on front pastedown; many of the pages were not properly seperated by the printer (as is common with this particular edition), we have meticulously gone through and separated them. This resulted in several pages with very small chips or tears along the edges, but overall the process was successful. Does not include the glassine jacket but does include the slipcase, which has some wear.
