268 pages plus advertising pages (complete). Half leather. At some stage the book has been rebound with consequent newer end papers and page trimming. Linen boards with mud-brown leatherings. The corners and spine are healthy and smart. The boards have some very mild wear to the edges from shelving. They are comfortable. The new binding is not wholly secure against the contents. The first page (pastoral illustration of flies) has some consequent wear about the binding edge. It is secure, the illustration full. Despite this the book is tight and sure. The contents are aged. There are age spots, rashes of foxing, very shallow tanning all through. However, the pages are sufficiently clean, clear, confident, generous of spirit, keen to be still entertaining, informative and utterly engaging and companionable. fk.
