[iv]-xv, [i] blank, -376 pages of text. Original hardcover binding is moderately sunned on the spine with minor shelfwear. Illustrated with 86 in-text figures.

This title was issued at least three times; once by Excelsior Pub. House, once by J. Haney & Co., and this publication in which no publisher is listed but Jesse Haney & Co. is listed as the copyright holder on the title page. This is most likely an early reprint edition. Scarce in any edition.
