Original red cloth boards with a red leather spine, fresh gilt lines and title on the spine, but the leather looks splotchy and has wear at the spine ends. Rear hinge beginning to split at the top. Inside, clean and tight with no foxing or browning. The map has a repair on the verso at the folds. This is a prized, early book on hunting in the hills and mountains of the Himalaya and the difficulties with Chinese officials up on the Thibet (tibet) border. A nice copy of a scarce book.
