Brown boards with red titling to the spine. The cloth is discoloured in patches and to the edges from light exposure/age, but is very sound and tight and with no damage or edgewear. In a partial dust-jacket that is torn to the folds, etc, and with loss to the corners, and large patches missing on the spine. All tears now repaired to the reverse with clear archive tape and the d/j is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks better. The page fore-edges are generally very clean but a little toned with age. Internally VERY Good. A former owner's name in ink on the top of the half title = Kenneth Bulkeley Schofield. A relation I assume, and a note on the paper opposite in the same hand, o/w NO marks inside - an excellent copy. Map endpapers. (viii) + 194 pp. 3 b/w illustrations.
