Book Condition: Good


48 fine coloured plates, folio, green cloth very slightly marked and worn, slight bump on one edge, very slightly bowed, in plain paper dustwrapper which, though a little marked and torn, is seldom present and has helped to keep the binding in better than normal condition. A little browning and foxing of the endpapers.There is a pinhole in the rear cover which continues through the last twelve plates. This tiny damage is most noticeable on the last plate, and decreases as one progresses backwards. [Very scarce. The plates alone, without the original text, bound in cloth as here, were purchased and distributed by Wheldon & Wesley in the early fifties.]
