Hardback – publisher’s cloth with inlay label/plate to front board, gilt title to spine. 222pp, [2] catalogue, including b/w illustrations plus six colour plates. 7.75 x 5.25 inches approx. (198mm x 137mm).

Spine ends pushed-in and a little worn; light wear to corner tips; inlay plate a little rubbed and marked. Scattered foxing throughout, the occasional page more so; some dustiness or mark but generally pages clean; spotting to edges of page-block with some encroachment onto page margins.

Nonetheless, a nicely preserved copy – quite lovely.
