From the library of NASA scientist Ralph Donaldson, with a few scattered pencil annotations and several slips of scrap paper laid in.
Hinges of both volumes cracked, though the bindings still hold. Some minor chipping tro endpapers of each. Rubbing to spine ends and tips, but the cloth remains vivid and the gilt bright. Despite stated faults a handsome set that presents well. Item #30029
