158 pages, frontispiece portrait of George Kemp, 10 colour vignettes in the text, folding map, red cloth titled in back on the upper cover and spine, the cloth is a little faded.
The book is dedicated to Major George Kemp M.P. Opposite the frontispiece portrait is pasted a small obituary notice of Kemp which summarises his career as politician, cricketer - he played for Lancashire and England - and soldier. Contemporary works with coloured illustrations are unusual and this must have been an expensive production for its day.
