By Mayne, Major C B

Royal Engineers Institute, Chatham, 1895. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 357 pages plus folded designs, charts, diagrams, illustrations (complete). A much owned copy.

A stout book. The boards are knocked about, worn, scuffed. The spine has been repaired. The boards are steady and sound. The contents are much worn about the edges. There tend to be freckles of foxing about the edges. The binding is tight. The pages are clean, clear, earnest, assured, competent, diligent, ready. fk
