Plates lightly foxed and spotted, handling tear to map sometime repaired with tissue-tape (since partially re-torn), small abrasion to facing page as a result of the tape. Bindings just a little rubbed and scuffed. Bookplate of Alan Stark to pastedowns. The issue with separate pagination across the two volumes - evidently a corrected reissue, with pagination errors rectified and the Addenda incorporated into the first volume; the index of vol. 1 has also been amended to remove references to the Addenda and a previous, cancelled index. The ESTC entry for this issue locates only 5 copies against over 60 of the other issue. ESTC N469342. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
