Hard cover, 12 ½ x 8 format, 579 pp. The front cover and several advertisement pages in the front are loose, but the binding of the text block is otherwise holding together well. The spine cover is missing. Boards worn at the corners and scuffed on the front. Some of the pages, mostly in the back, are wrinkled and creased.
