Boards have heavy wear and some bumping. Foxing to edges of page block. Some foxing to preliminaries and last few pages - otherwise basically internally clean. 163pp (pages 83 to 159 contain the plates). Inscribed to the ffep in pencil is a paragraph about the book and his work, signed by Ambrosi Wien 1928. His signature is most distinctive and can be compared to the facsimiles within the text. It appears to be dedicated to a friend Francis Friest. My partial deciphering of the inscription is a follows "In diesem buche ist nur der keim zu einem eigent ?? lebenswerk, das zu schaffen ein lebenswerk als versich zur voraussetung hat, diese werke des versichs sin der weg, die schile, die taten mussen erst kommen - Francis ?? Friest herzlich ?? Ambrosi ?? in Wien 1928" The ?? replace words I can't make out. Scan of this inscription available upon request. ECONOMY AIRMAIL TO EUROPE APPROX EU13.
