This terrific atlas is complete with 38 single-page and 35 double-page maps of the world and United States. This example features a title page in a vibrant green and black ink. There are several beautiful, full-page wood engraved views and vignettes interspersed throughout the text. An abundance of information can be found in the charts and diagrams, and the 6 pages of presidential portraits add to this atlas' already charming character. The maps are printed back-to-back, and double-page maps are on two separate sheets. Complete. Small Folio. Hardbound in original brown cloth with embossed gilt title on front cover.
Contents generally very good with occasional foxing and just a hint of toning along the edges. A couple pages in the back are loosening. Covers are slightly scuffed, corners are a bit bumped and spine has a small amount of loss at the extremities, but the binding is still sound.
