iv, 572p., steel-engraved frontis portrait of our editor and several other steel portraits of American politicos, hardbound in amateurishly modified boards: bright red shelf-paper with home-made spine titling, a garish effect that surely overlies an original casing in worse condition. Text and inserted plates appear to be complete. Both hinges are badly cracked but holding, paperstock mildly toned with scattered foxing, a fair-only copy. N° de ref. de la librería
