515 pages (complete). From the library at Yatton Court (blazon with motto: Sub cruce salus). A much owned copy of this memoir by the most extraordinary Sir John Barrow. The boards are much worn, scuffed, marked from handling and storage, rubbed all about. They are wearily resolute. The spine is shabby but has been repaired. The boards are steady and sound. The contents are benignly aged throughout. The guttering along the frontispage is cracked - but the security of the book is unaffected. The contents have handling, age and storage marks throughout. Foxing is sprinkled throughout. There is wear to the pagetrims. Otherwise, and perhaps more importantly, the pages are convivial, bold, confident, certain, clear, companionable, more than competent. fk.
