Rhetoric and English Composition, by Sir Herbert J. C. Grierson. This copy carries the 'signature' of 'Flora Grierson' (his daughter, 1899-1966, author and founder of the Samson Press), to the first free endpaper, dated to May 1946, although it is clearly written in the hand of Herbert Grierson himself, so was perhaps presented to his daughter by him.

A good green cloth hardback with dustjacket. Jacket is worn and discolored with missing nibbles at extremities. Green cloth has a few minor spots and bumping. Endpapers and some pages at either end have some age spotting. Otherwise text is clean and soundly bound.
