Publisher's pictorial wrappers, Evidence of former institutional ownership. Poor condition.
Item is over 100 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Booklet is heavily toned and age worn, cover detached, map paper fragile and split with small thin missing piece along centerfold top as seen, a fragile survival of a rare 19th century pocket guide book.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and overall is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
