Condition: I'm keeping the written description brief so please examine all the photos and get in touch for more details. An attractive copy of the second edition, ninth impression, dated 1957. Book is externally excellent, points and spine tips very sharp, boards very clean. Text-block edges slightly dusty and mottled. Inside map end papers very clean and white, one neat ink inscription. There are a very few small, light marks here and there throughout the text but generally all very clean. Complete with colour frontispiece and all other illustrations. Binding strong. The original dust jacket is identified as a 'tenth impression' and has been laminated with plastic at some point. This has kept it well preserved and it may well come off with the right treatment. Please see the photos, they are part of the description.
