Main title lightly spotted, some plates showing minor creasing at corners but all essentially intact. Interior and exterior views, most one image per plate, some two per plate. Housed in original dark green cloth covered boards portfolio, with dark green ties, tanned along top edge, exterior cloth mildly rubbed and toned, interior paper lining showing minor silverfishing loss along some edges (not affecting any plates).
