Pages crisp and clean except for gray fingerprints in the bottom margins of three pages; no other owners' marks; some gentle toning in the margins throughout, particularly at the title page. Binding is square and secure, the cord through the spine showing a little discoloration and fraying at the ends but otherwise clean and sound. The hard cover shows some drip spotting, a faint red mark, and a small white smudge at the left front, some fading at the spine, a small area of finish attenuation at the lower left rear and three tiny specks at the right, light rubbing at corners and spine ends, and some dimming of the gilt titles at the front, but remains otherwise sound and attractive. An album of fifty black-and-white photographs of beaches, cottages, and urban buildings in the lakes area; scarce.
