Concise History of the War

Condition. The book is in Good+ condition. While the binding is solid, the top cord tie is loose at the back. The covers are lightly soiled. Corners are bumped and slightly rounded. None of the folded pages are cut or severed at the fold. The plates and maps are aged/toned and this appears to be a result of the type of paper used. There is light scattered foxing throughout the book.
