The binding is worn at the extremities and the front board is splitting along the endpaper hinge.

However a large formal group portrait by Johnston & Hoffmann shows the Viceroy Lord Minto with his Legislative Council which includes F A T Phillips in the rear row close to Kunwar Sahib Sir Ranbir Singh of Patiala.
