Dark blue cloth, lettered and illus. on spine panel in gilt. [iv],543 pp. Light shelf wear, a bit rubbed at corners and spine extremities; gilt remains bright and intact on spine -- presents as solid VG or better. However, while binding and hinges are fully intact, interior curiously lacks contents and illustrations listings, preface, introduction, endnotes, glossary, and all illustrations; main text and index are complete, and thus potentially still a useful reference copy. The first (British) edition, preceding the American first (by Dutton) in the same year.
