4to, half-title, col’d frontis, title, viii, 47p. 58 full page mono. photographic plts. Bound in turquoise cloth, lettered in gilt to spine. d/w lettered and dec. in green, not clipped.

Definitive study of the high water-mark of Irish binding, including images of the incomporable Parliamentary bindings, many of which were destroyed in the 1922 uprising.  Minor stains to the prelims.  Some light soiling and handling marks to d/w and a few surface scrapes.  A very good copy.
