Solid hinges, and the cloth bindings now protected in mylar sleeves. Inside hinges fine, foxing only to preliminary pages and half titles both present. A classic report on the first English contacts with Siam. See Cordier Indosinica 736. Also some discussion of Laos and Cambodia. Unusual to find the original cloth in such solid condition.
