Remaining text is in Italian. Volume may be ex-library, as there is some wear to spine appearing that a label may have been removed, as well as to rear end leaves where tape residue remains. Letter M of cover title, MIGNON, is worn, though title remains clear. All of writing and drawings remain very bright and clean. Folded and laid into the book is a typed letter with personal letterhead of Luigi Albertieri at 11 East 59th Street, New York, and dated May 17, 1927.

Letter is signed boldly by the author, with hand written note "Give my best whishes (sic) to my dear Martha." Letter has been folded and has weekend along folds. There is a 1 x 2 inch piece of the letter with typed text that is detached, though smoothly torn and laid in place.
