Tight and square binding has been professionally restored, saving the original cloth but laying it down over new grey cloth-covered beveled boards; book also has new endpapers, and two caption pages have been restored that were missing 5-6" chips at their bottom outside corners (not affecting text). Original cloth of binding is very smudged and a little scuffed; pages have rather frequent finger smudges, not affecting the text or images, and penciled notes on one early blank page have been erased but have left faint traces. All pages have faint 2"-wide, 1/2"-deep dampstains at their top outside corners.
