This edition, with illustrations by Cyrus Baldridge, dates to 1945. There are beautiful colorplates throughout the book, as well as on the inside of the dust cover, both front and back. There are also many black & white illustrations. The book itself is in phenomenal shape. The cover is a bit dirty, and there is some yellowing around the edge of the pages. But there are no tears, stains or creases on the copy pages. The binding is also in excellent condition.
