Photo of actual book - By Book Seller- very nice old book. Naturally this book has wear at the tips and edges (it is over 100 years old), the pages are tanned with age, but are not brittle, numerous black and white illustrations. Wonderful old book. Back of the cover has a 2x4 inch stain at the top edge, previous owner name and gift inscription dated X'mas 93 in fountain pen in (I presume it refers to 1893). N° de ref. de la librería
