State: In book as published
Condition: Solid book, inner hinges all solid. Externally covers very good, slight nibbling to top of spine and a 4 cm split to the bottom of the spine hinge, although not weak. The prints have some foxing and the white inks have oxidised, turning the ink dark, which happens to a number of prints published by Baxter at that time.
