Condition: The front and back covers (pictured) have suffered damage from damp, but surprisingly this has not affected either the text block or the contents of the book. There is a 3 cm crack at the top of the hinge at the interior front cover, but it has not affected the binding which is still tight. The pages, other than the coloured maps, which still stand out, have obviously lost their original freshness, but the book is free from any noticeable tanning and has no spotting. The text block is clean.
