A. & C. Black, 1897. Buckram. 12mo. Acceptable / No Dustjacket. Item #050811
Textured blue cloth with gilt lettering at front and spine; many full-page foldout maps. Pages clean, with no owners' marks; a map corresponding to the beginning of the chapter on Guernsey has been removed, but all other pages are intact, if rather dust-spotted around the page block edges and showing a very small bore-hole extending slightly into the margins of pp. 105-index. Binding is relaxed but secure; spine is rather darkened, but the gilt title remains legible; some rubbing with tiny spots of fraying at corners and spine ends, a line of rubbing along one spine shoulder, a spot of brownish residue at the upper rear, otherwise attractive and sound.
