Woodcut figures, diagrams and plans; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 499 pages; Soundly bound in original textured purple cloth with titles in gilt to spine. Ex-library copy with shadow of catalog label base of spine over a slim painted call number. Expected institutional ownership indications including bookplate to front pastedown and attachments at rear. Shallow fray to cloth at crown and less so at tail of spine. Some unsightly damp mottling to cloth of the lower third of the birds, heavier at rear - but with negligible effect to any pages, just very mild damp evidence to front and rear endpages. Contents snug and clean; profusely illustrated with woodcut figures, diagrams of battlefield formations and maps. One signature starting a little mid-book. Decent copy is a good candidate for rebinding. Good only thus
