Further Details

Blue cloth-covered boards, gilt titles to spine, 144 pages, illustrations form photographs (including of farming subjects), topographical map of Scotland to front pocket, geological map to rear. The geological map is interesting (and confusing), published as it was at a time when the Geological Survey still had to agree on appropriate methods of survey in structurally complex areas such as the Northern Highlands of Scotland. The topographical map shows all the railways as they were in 1927. Condition: The geological map is bright, with no loss, but has small splits/tears at the folds, and creasing at one corner. The topographical map is in very good condition. There is foxing to the end papers and fore edges but the text pages and photographic plates are on the whole unmarked. Slight warping to the front board.
