Hard cover, the binding is in ok shape. The cover is more torn inside. Pages feel somewhat thick and silky smooth. A couple of page dividers that are hard shiny paper. A lot of small pictures through out the book describing things and several maps too.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, can you please upload a few better images of the frontispiece. This is the first or second printed page of the book.
With kind regards,
