Binding: hardback, stitch bound; coloured tops.

Overall condition fair to good: the dustjacket on this copy is a bit scuffed and discoloured with age, rather ragged on its edges and corners; the top corners of pp. 31-42 are noticeably rucked, but in other respects the book itself looks in good order, previous owner's name on front endpaper, but the main text appears to be free of marking.
