This copy has a probably contemporary quarter leather binding with marbled boards and marbled page edges and marbled endpapers. The binding has wear but is in good sound condition. There is some damage to the front endpapers in the gutter, and some pencil annotation to the verso of the fep. Contents: title page; directions to binder 1p; Errata 1p; Introduction v-xvi; contents 4pp; folding chart; text pp 1-293; half title - Appendice; text pp 297-309; Fin; 11 further folding maps, charts and plate. The plates are numbered I-XII. The contents are generally very clean with the occasional light spot or mark. There is single small worm track in the gutter of pp 1-36, and a small stain around the track in the gutter affecting pp 14/15 and 16/17. The later plates have a little browning to edges where they protrude from the book and the final map has some browning.
