Very good condition. Publisher's special binding of full dark green morocco with gilt title to spine and vignettes to front cover. Pink pictorial endpapers. 12 beautiful colour plates with captioned tissue-guards. 287 pages. Top edge gilt.
Minimal rubbing to spine and corners. Endpapers very slightly grubby, small piece torn from margin of front free-endpaper (and neatly stuck back in). Name and date in ink to verso of front free-endpaper. Light crack to rear pastedown, grubby mark to margin of rear free-endpaper. Tissue-guard to frontis is detached (very neatly) but still present. Some fingermarking to tissue-guards and very light marking to some of plate margins, minimal foxing to outer page edges, but overall a very nice copy indeed!
