Seller ID 42672
Octavo, publisher's dark blue cloth, gilt lettering at spine and front board, advert. in black at rear board; advert. paste-down endpapers, first free leaf is half-title, last free leaf is final index/printing detail, xxvii + 313pp. illustrations, including folding plans, two folding text leaves with illustrations not noted at prelims. Cloth just a little dulled and with very minor soiling, a little rubbing at edges; joints a little strained and so a bit shaken, but holding alright. Closed tear at one leaf, early owner's signature at half-title margin, some underlining, very inextensive. Some foxing at final few leaves, but elsewhere minimal. Priced accordingly, and better than it sounds.
