With the exception of the following library markings the vols look new w/ carmine covers w/ gold lettering. The library markings include Dewey Decimal numbers in gold and evidence that a sticker has been removed from the base of the spine. There are penciled Dewey Decimal numbers on the front paper covers and title pages. There is an attractive book plate from the Huntington Free Library and the Museum of the American Heye Foundation inside the front covers and their blind stamp on the lower right hand corner of the title pages. These do little to detract from the appearance of these beautiful vols. Vol I has 477 Pp w/ a frontis photo, 18 figs and 19 maps. Vol II has 257 full-page plates w/ facing pages describing in detail each of the thousands of specimens pictured.
