There is a printing error where there is no plate 10, instead plate 9 is repeated where plate 10 is supposed to be. The covers have some wear as illustrated in the photos, most noticeably a small section (about 2 inches) of cracking to the upper part of the front leather joint. However, the binding is good and strong. The pages have some foxing, some pages more so than other.
Along with that some pages may have some small tears or chips, creased page corners, wrinkling or some other small imperfection that comes with a book this age. All in all scarce antique leather bound American book on Navigation.Please look at the photos to further note the condition and message me with any questions you might have.
