The binding is only gently relaxed but is canted to the right. The ink and gilt decorated full cloth cover bears rub-through and fraying at the heel edges, spine ends, and free corners, a small open tear in the cloth at the left side of the spine, white spotting and scratching on the back, some dark staining at the lower front, and surface wear along the spine sides and foreedges, yet remains overall sound and striking. 344pp. + 4pp. advertisements; 48 black-and-white drawings and photo illustrations, three maps.
