A fragile volume, with toned paper (several pages chipped at the edges) and some looseness to the binding, primarily at the point where 8 of the 9 maps are bound in. Surface dampstain to the lower 1-1/2" of the front cover, which does intrude into the book. Bookplate to the front pastedown, otherwise unmarked.
