Published by Order of the Trustees of the British Museum, London, 1930. First edition was in 1909.
A good hardback with brown paper over boards. Covers shelfworn and creased to spine. Hinges intact, but feel slightly fragile - as per all the Museum's guides of this period due to binding technique used. Some cracking at inner joint to first endpapers. Previous owner's signature in pencil to first free endpaper.
Minor age spotting to endpapers and offsetting to last text page. Text is otherwise clean and bright throughout, well illustrated with photographs and diagrams. An excellent reference book with very high quality content.
