Pages crisp and clean, if very lightly toned throughout; no owners' marks. Binding somewhat relaxed, but secure; leather spine shows surface wear along joints and at raised bands and spine ends, closed cracks in the leather on either side of the spine head, and a discolored patch at the top rear, but gilt titles and decoration are bright and fresh-looking; leather corners show considerable wear around the edges and some surface loss at the upper free corners, and cloth boards show edge rubbing, three small scuffs on the front, and gentle surface wear front and back; yet overall, the cover remains attractive and sound, the leather remarkably supple. 478pp. w/index; marbled endpapers and page block edges; 270 woodcuts and 16 full-page plates, the hammer-headed shark, the Batrachus tau, and the caiman being among the most striking.
