Original quarter cream cloth over paper-covered boards with titles in gilt to the upper board, in original slipcase. Illustrated with 43 colour photographic plates. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with minor bumping to the extremities and a couple of small marks to the spine. The contents with some light foxing to the preliminary pages and to page edges are otherwise in good order and clean throughout. The slipcase is in good condition and is structurally sound with just a few slash marks.
