159pp. Sextodecimo [17 cm] Olive green and gold printed wraps. Very good. The paper at the spine ends is a little chipped, there is a tiny open tear in the front wrap near the spine, and there is a short closed tear in the top edge of the rear wrap. The front flyleaf has a previous owner's name. There are subtle tide marks on the top margins of the pages at the end of the text. Complete, with the folding maps.
From the Preface- "In arranging the handbook effort has been made to eliminate matters of purely individual concern and to give as fully as possible local and regional facts of interest to all... The controlling idea has been rather to present active information concerning a living, growing country, beautiful in setting and magnificent in resources."
