The librarian has added the date of receipt of the book (3 Dec 1902) to the title page in a neat hand, and the author has written "with the author's compliments" to the inside of the free endpaper. There is a blindstamp to the title page only, and remains of three tiny shelfmarks ont the spine. Two or three pages or plates are protruding a bit, indicating a weakness in the binding, which is clearly overwhelmed by the quantity of plates
