The binding is in its original state and is bright, clean and sound with some fading to the spine and light pulling at the spine ends with a little chip at the top. The bottom front corner has a light bump; the remaining corners have very light wear. The original green endpapers are present without marking. Contents: volume listing; half title; black and white frontispiece portrait of Haller with tissue guard; hand coloured vignette title page with picture of Green Tody; 2 further title pages; advert; contents listing; Memoir of Baron Haller; text; and 31 hand coloured plates bound at the rear.

The plates are exceptionally well coloured.
