Printed and bound in Japan. Beige cloth binding, with crisp black- and gilt-stamped lettering. 10.75 x 8.25 inches. Text block firmly bound in. 240 numbered pages and 225 text illustrations. Also with 19 color plates, tipped-in and with tissue guards, and 96 B&W plates. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. A little page rippling on the first 50 pages or so, apparently not from moisture but rather from the manner of binding the book. Else a very clean copy, and rather tight. Gently read. Pictorial DJ, price-clipped. The front of the dust jacket is moderatelyly rippled. Just a hint of rubbing to the DJ. A Very Good copy in a Very Good DJ.
