Scarce late 19th century geographical periodical removed from bound volume (evidence visible along spine).
Original paper cover, lacking rear wrapper. Binding appears extracted from a bound volume, remains clean, tight, and sound. Interior clean, some pages loosened from old dried glue binding, light signs of use.
The periodical remains well preserved given the fragile nature. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives. Uncommon 19th century scientific magazine in any condition.
