Second Edition. Name of previous owners on inside cover, half of title page missing (including the publication date) I have guessed at the publication date by reading in the text to see what statistics were quoted and what years they were taken. I guess 1959. Cover in good condition. Pages tight and spine sound. Much underlining throughout. signs of humidity. Watermark on lower right corner of cover.
