This impressive 848 page tome was published in 2003 by Cambridge University Press. ISBN 0-521-57634-2. [Approx 23 x 16.5 x 5cms & 1385g]
It is in very good condition with all pages clean and tightly bound. It has been covered in clear contact to protect the softcover. Any imperfections you can see in the first couple of photos are marks on that, or reflections. There are a few marks on the edges of the closed pages, most notably along the top side where pens have rubbed against it, but nothing terribly noticeable or bad.
