Title continues: The whole calculated for general use and convenience, both on land and sea. 55, [4] pages, however the pagination is a mess. Leaves marked as page 29, 30, 41, 42 appear twice - each with different content. The leaves marked twice as pages 48, 49, 50, 51 are identical. No pages are numbered 33, 34, 45, 46. In spite of this ironic embarassment, the volume appears to be complete and bound in order. Marbled paper over boards with leather spine and tips. Foxing and stains throughout. Binding sound. "Time Register" stamped in gilt to spine. View more info
