Ex-library. Red cloth covered boards, black titles. With several pull-out maps three appendices and a bibliography. A substantial work. Condition: The boards show differential fading and staining; the top board is a little warped. The front paste down has the tatty remains of a lending library ‘s regulations. There is foxing to the half title. However the text is unmarked and the maps are all clean and sound, making this a good reading copy.
