This book has been hand-made of 90 blueprints in a limited edition of 500 signed and numbered copies. Wraps are near fine, interior pages are clean with typical age toning along the edges. Dust jacket is very good, with a bit of aging to the spine and top edge and one minor closed tear at the foot of the spine.
