Original paper over boards, x, 226 pages, color frontis and 36 plates, four in color (if I counted right), all with captioned tissue; includes a Bibliography of Stained-glass, Bibliography of Swiss Stained-glass, Catalogues of Swiss Glass Collections, Unidentified Swiss Signatures, The Leads, and an Index. Exterior of this copy is in rough shape. There is extensive chipping at spine ends and along side of spine, paper is discolored and rippled, some paper loss on back, corners bumped with a lot of wear, damp stain on both covers, wear along board edges. Interior is a different story. Although there is a damp stain along fore-edge and into blank margin of all pages and plates, there is no foxing, pages are clean with no writing or markings, and plates are all present and in very good condition, though a couple of the b & w white plates have some light soil; binding intact.
