Besides the beautiful maps, the book has many other great features - the geography of each continent, historical and statistical information, a chronological history of the great rebellion (Civil War), an alphabetical listing of the Cities Of The World (townships and towns of the US and remainder of the world) - with their populations, Distances Between Important Places, Images of the Coats of Armour for each state (only 34 states at the time), Religious Denominations In The World, Images of National Flags, and much more! Overall this atlas and the maps are in nice shape. The partial leather boards have issues with wear, stains, discoloration and scuffing. The spine has some rips and the leather is rubbed. The interior maps and charts all seem to be present and generally in nice shape.
There is some browning and discoloration. Most of the issues are to the boarder areas of the maps and pages - with browning and some nicks/chips and stains.
The actual maps are not hugely affected, but do have some spotting and browning. There are some pressed leaves between some of the pages that were left by a previous owner.
These have causes some foxing and heavier browning to those pages. Many of the pages have creases in the corners, and nicks/chips along the edges. Most of the maps are full pages - with a crease up the middle from the center of the book.
