This copy: 4to (10" x 14"); bound in black half-leather over terra-cotta cloth; spine title stamped in gilt; 226 photographic plates (14 double-page), with descriptive captions. Moderate rubbing to leather at joints and corners; half-inch split to front joint at bottom of spine; faint cup ring front cover; superficial vertical crease down middle of front and back covers; hinges cracked but holding firm; front endpapers creased; dampstain to front lower corner tip of first ten leaves, far away from image.
