With over One Hundred Illustrations by De La Charlerie, Rambert, Alexandre de Bar, and others. 12 3/4" by 10 1/8". Written as a travel narrative, largely about Russia with a section on "Transylvania and the Turkish Principalities" and little about Greece [last 12 pages]. Keep scrolling for more pictures. As they are part of the description. Externally - nice hardcover with.
And black spine lettering that says " Russia and Greece". Back cover looks about as good as the front but with some discoloration /fading upper left corner; it has the same design as the front [blind stamped] but it is not colored black like the front. Most of the gilt on cover has been re-done. Spine ends worn, but the rest of the spine looks pretty good for its age. Pages are all generally clean.
20 small rips repaired with doc. Tape [most about an inch, some smaller - largest one was about 3]. Endpapers foxed and a bit grubby; name written on ffep. Top of the pages in the gutter area are lightly bent.
Otherwise - very good for age! If I missed something it was unintentional.
Remember - when opening an old book, always have the cover supported! It's best to place it on a soft pillow. VERY RARE travel book on RUSSIA - grab it before it's gone! Please Add me to your Favorites list.

This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to. So the old book smell doesn't bother me.
