Berlin: Atlantis-Verlag, 1931. Languages: Introduction in German; photo captions in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian. This is a former library copy with a browned sticker at the lower spine, a small sticker on the front endpaper, a partially abraded inkstamp on the title page, and a few stickers, ink stamps, and markings on the final endpaper. Pages are otherwise clean except for a few scattered fingerprints, a few small edge tears, scattered smudges and small stains along the foreedge and heel edge of the page block, small nicks along the gilded head edge, and modest age toning in the margins. Binding is square and secure, red leather spine showing the aforementioned sticker near the heel as well as mild scuffing along the joints, surface wear and a few little chips at the spine ends, a few spots of rubbing to the title bar and gilt decoration, the red leather corners bearing rub-through at the tips and surface wear around the edges with some scuffs on the front and rear surfaces; green textured paper over the rest of the hard cover showing only a pale spot near the bottom rear and chipping along the edges, mostly at the front foreedge and rear heel edge, otherwise sound and attractive. XLVIII + 256pp.; black-and-white photographs; gilt titles and decorations at spine; gilded head edge. Good.
