No dustjacket; the cover is discoloured and marked with moderate age wear including bumping to corners and wear to the applied picture including scratching and patches of loss to the surface; the pages are tanned with age, with some corner creases, marks and moderate reading wear; one leaf has a large piece torn off the corner, resulting in slight loss to one of the illustrations but not affecting the text on the other side.
