Published c. 1860, Paris by Rosa & Bouret.
64 pages. Text in Spanish. Complete with 31 maps, each with separate text leaf.

Rare Spanish language issuance.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding well and heavily age worn but still appealing, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper and maps are thumbed, some soiling and small scattered stains, uniformly toned, 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.
