Condition description: Soiled and with wear to covers, rear board particularly soiled. Rubbed at head and tail of spine. Fore-edge corners also rubbed and bumped. Block edges markedly discolored and with marks - remnants of block edge ‘marbling’ noted? Binding overall sound, though gutters flattened in places. Complete with all monochrome plates as called for. Internally, clean for age and type; though with discoloration/brown spotting particularly to some pages towards the rear. In one place – two facing pages with damage to surface at lower edge (probably previously stuck together). Rear ‘free’ endpaper with ‘sequence’ of numbers in pen (ballpoint) and rear pastedown with a large brown mark.
In addition to plates, a few illustrations in the text
