The spine is loose and has been repaired/reinforced at some time with like paper. The pages are loose with binding marks through-out. There is a little age yellowing.

The images are in b& w unless otherwise stated. Some of the pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. This item will be packaged in a tube.
