Leicester: Printed by OUP for the Leicester University Press, 1962. Hardcover. 222p., illustrated with charts, tables, diagrams, and maps of various sorts and periods. Handsome big quarto (11.5x9 inches) with gloriously executed bevelled green cloth boards (gilt) and plain printed dust jacket on matte stock. Foxing is the primary condition problem with this item, aesthetic only, textblock's leading edge is sprinkled with vivid discolorations that have migrated fractionally into the margins of many leaves and affected the dj also. Dj is slightly edgeworn, but besides this trivial wear, the invasive foxing, and a neat little bookseller's fiche to rear pastedown, the item is virtually as new: crisply square, unmarked by human hand.
