The Mystic Mandrake, C.J.S. Thompson
Scarce first edition of this illustrated history of the mandrake plant, "a careful and exhaustive study of this weird subject."
London: Rider & Co., 1934. Original cloth with gilt titles to spine, illustrated throughout. Binding is tight and sturdy, minor shelfwear to boards. Ripping to the cloth of the front board with a few stains, light foxing to edges of text block. Internally clean but for some faint foxing. Jacket shows some wear, with a few closed tears reinforced with archival tape to verso, rubbing and light soiling, protected in archival mylar. Scarce, particularly with the dust jacket. Presents well.
