Second edition. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Chocolate-brown boards. The spine is stamped in black and gilt. 433pp. Includes 10 maps and numerous plates. A previous owner's blindstamp is in the bottom corner of the half-title page. A couple of tips have minor bumping. This volume is, otherwise, in splendid shape: clean, tight, square, and bright.
