Full Title = "The Official Illustrated Guide to the Great Northern Railway Including the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire, and Midland Railways with Descriptions of the Most Important Manufactories in the Large Towns on the Lines... Embellished with 250 Engravings". Re-bound at some point in the past with a plain dark blue leather spine and corners, and blue cloth boards. No titling. The binding could be contemporary but certainly late 19th Century or early 20th. Leather rubbed, particularly to the corners. Plain blue endpapers. All hinges tight. Some pale brown dry staining runs through the book, but which peters out to the top only through most of the book. The worst staining is on the first 30 pp, but it is light and doesn't obscure any text or illustrations. The rest runs through the book, mainly just to the blank margin at the top. See Images.
