Runs to 500 pages with photo illustrations + 18 Photogravures & tissue between many of the photo plate pages. It is from a limited edition of just 1000 of which this is Number 51. Leather bound in red Morocco with gilt emboss , the page edges are gilt and it has marbled end papers to inside covers. .Not dated, it appears to be circa 1930. Internally in very good condition but there is notable wear to extremities of the leather covers at corners and top/bottom spine. (See photos)
