129 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout with small intext drawings. Large folding map at front (with repaired tear).
Publisher's illustrated paper wrappers. Rare guide.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, covers well spotted, spine paper mostly present and legible (small chipping at ends), remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, couple leaves with some edge toning, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
