Schapera 1939"), with pink ticket and date due slip (and previous owner's name - Sestrade) to inside cover and front endpaper; "ligeiras erratas" slip between endpaper and half title page; pages slightly tanned at edges but text and map and illustrations are complete and unblemished, boards are quite scuffed at edges with rubbing discolouration to faces, fair bit of rubbing to leather spine which bears ref. no.s in white and on sticker: prologue page bears inscription by author - "Ai Ex (mo). Senhor Sestrade muito illustre scientista e professor, como prova da mais alta consideracao pelo seu saber e inteligencia. Afeseu 12 - 1 - 932 Francisco Toscano" - I'm no portuguese, but from online translation services I have deduced that the English is something like the following - "To my former Sir (tutor?) Sestrade, much illustrious scientist and professor, as testimony of my very high consideration for your knowledge and intellect. For you." 473 pages, printed October 1930.. Good to Very Good .
