Wraps, 15.5 by 20 cm, [144] pp. An unread, near fine copy but for a bump at the head of the spine.

Large sepia-toned photograph, approx. 20 by 26 cm, matted in a 28 by 38.5 cm portrait folder. The folder, with “Malme / Racine” printed in the lower margin, has had the cover flap neatly removed (probably for framing). The remaining mat is near fine, and the photograph is fine.
