[iii]-ix, [1]-154, [1]-400. Selling as-is as an incomplete volume in poor condition though largely complete and in a curious binding of birch bark: The (unsigned, apparently 2nd half of 20th century) binding is birch bark over stiff card. Binding is sound but contents poor. Title page is typed, first original leaf is the Introduction [p. iii]. The first two leaves and all final leaves from page 300 are soft/deteriorated, with loss of paper and some text from pp. 350-400: most of each leaf legible, but some few not at all good, part of 383/4 is detached, parts of a few leaves are stuck together... . The binder [perhaps as an exercise in learning the craft] evidently attempted to preserve a few fragments by mounting partial leaves to white blanks, and transcribed some pages in type [395-397, 399]. The final leaf in this volume is part of p. 400 [mounted] - not 413 as it should be. There is no map, and no errata. This volume: [iii]-ix, [1]-154, [1]-400. Contents ugly with black mold-like splotches. This appears to have been stabilized: no odor and does not transfer when rubbed.
