GOOD Condition: The bindings of both volumes have some shelf and edge wear but remain solid and are doing their job well, internally, Volume I has ink stamps stating: "Department of Geography / The University of Texas / Austin 12, Texas" on the blank endpapers, title page, and the folder at the rear (these are stamps of the department that produced and published the book and are not ex-lib stamps) otherwise the pages of both volumes are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The folder at the rear of Volume II that holds many folding maps is creased along the edge where it overhangs the book's text block. All the fold open maps and charts are present and are in VERY GOOD condition.
A comprehensive study of the Southwest Coast of Mexico with an abundance of maps and photographic plates.
