Publisher: Oxford at the Clarendon Press, 1941, fifth edition. Hardback, 459 pages, dustjacket, profusely illus with photographs and drawings. Cover, in green cloth boards with gilt titling to spine is in very good clean and bright condition commensurate with age with just slight bumping to spine extremities. Internally the book is in good / very good, clean and tight condition for its age with a neat inscription to front endpaper (dated 1946) and some foxing spots to page block edge and here and there in the book, light tanning to page edges. The dustjacket is in reasonable condition commensurate with age, general tanning to edges, edgewear / shelfwear, chipping and a couple of small tears at spine extremities and at top of rear flap, tanning / fading to spine, but substantially complete and sound. A scholarly and thorough study (as would be expected from an Oxford publication) with many valuable photographs and drawings.
