This is a very good copy of the First American edition. There are several fold-out diagrams and floor plans at the middle and end of the book. There is an inscription in black ink on the front free endpaper; the pastedowns are bubbled; contents fine. The cover is scratched; a few small pieces have chipped off a top edge; else fine. A remarkably well-preserved copy.
