Published in 1910.
Fair condition hardback on navy blue boards with gilt titles to the spine. Some scuffing to the boards, and damage to the spine. The book is shaken, with cracked hinges in many places, however all pages are still attached. Internally, the book has former owner's inscriptions to the front free endpaper, which is yellowed, as well as a stamped date; the frontispiece and title pages are lightly foxed, with the title page also bearing a stamp reading "supplied for the public service." However, all of the text and diagrams are clear and fully legible.
