How it works


Leaf-green cloth-boards, gilt lettered to the spine. No dustjacket. Plain endpapers with David Hammond-Tooke's signature on the front free leaf. ix + 545 pp of text and index + 8 pp of inserted b/w plates. The contents are unmarked. There is, however, a light water-stain to the early top and front page edges; this does not affect the text but the plates (see images), bound at the front, are slightly rippled.

This more than 50-year-old copy is complete and unmarked and in nearly very good condition.
