There is some age yellowing. Some of the double paged photographs, sketches, diagrams etc are detached on the centre fold of the paper therefore some of the images are detached down centre, see *.

Some of the pages may be loose, and 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.
