Item #31753

First edition and printing. With over 360 beautifully reproduced photographs in both duotone and colour ranging from the 1840s to the time of publication. 8vo, in the publisher's original stiff paper wrappers, featuring full cover photographs by Tono Stano and Ralph T. Hutchings, the spine lettered in black and red. In the original frosted plastic slipcase ruled in red and with white lettering. 432pp. Internally the text and photos are near as new, essentially pristine, the wrappers are fresh and bright and unworn, a touch of minor mellowing to the glue-back spine as is all but inevitable, the plastic slipcase is solid, clean and fine but for some wear to the white lettering as is common.
