With marbled endpapers and outer edges of the text bloacks. Some have scattered foxing, (mostly to the prelim's.) but most are clean and tight, throughout. The backings remain tight. There is a little warping to the text blocks -as is often the case on this type of paper and age of book. Illustrated throughout with numerous illsutrations and maps.
