First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated with 62 photographs in black and white. Folding chart to the rear. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth fresh. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very lightly rubbed dustwrapper that has a small nick at the bottom of the upper panel without loss and a fractionally faded spine. Not price-clipped (15/6 net to the front flap). Uncommon in this lovely condition.
