WITHOUT the OFT MISSING folding panorama. . No indication panorama was ever bound in. Despite the loose 2nd blank, binding is tight and a torn out panorama should be obvious.

Boards still strongly attached but by cords alone. Completely collated. Plate entitled "NILUS" on p95 cleanly torn along spine about half way up, upper inch of tear just into the image. 3 or 4 leaves with short tears in margins. Margins of pp115-65 have upper corners folded over. 4 or 5 leaves around p125 with 1" dark stain in upper corner margin. Last 20 leaves with old light dampstain in upper corner margin. Few pencilled check marks and underlining. Few other very minor internal flaws. In short a quite nice copy of this important work. Sandys was also interested in the New World and spent time in Virginia. .
