Folio [39.5 cm] Brown cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine, and blind stamped decorative borders on the covers. Very good. The edges of the covers are rubbed. Some subtle professional restoration work has been done to the spine and corners of the covers. Several two inch long cracks in the spine have been subtly glued. There is occasional light foxing throughout the pages. The book is very sturdy.
With two large fold-out maps. Subjects include Geology of the Calitro Hills and Playa De Los Pimas as a Water Source.
