How it works


Original red cloth boards with gilt titling and a gilt design on the spine. 224 pages, 14 black and white photographic illustratioins and a fold out sketch map. CONDITION DETAILS: The binding has been repaired. See image of the upper hinge - the black strip is where glue was used to repair a crack. The binding is good and tight, indicating that glue was also used on the inside. The top of the spine near the lower board also has a dark glue patch. A small ownership stamp, "Thaola. Rec. Room.", occurs a few times on the end papers. The last photographic plate is loose, and as consequence has edge soiling and a crease.
