Fabulous photographs. Boards are in excellent condition with virtually no wear, no bumping or fading. The problems are internal and stem from the previous owners apparent compulsion to write all over his books. There are inscriptions in what looks like felt tip to front and rear paste downs and title page and rear end paper plus a small area of highlighting and a note on the last page of the index. Two inscriptions to text in what looks like pencil but which would leave indentations if removed. Well there you have it. None of this actually affects the text but it all looks quite unsightly. Otherwise internally in fine condition no turned over page corners. Very heavy book, please inquire for postage outside the UK. Photographs on request. Bookseller Inventory # 020897
