Also no d/w present, text in very good condition obviously well used “in the field” hence the words “Tropic Resistant Cover ” embossed on the front board and a prior owner’s name written on top right of ffep with light tanning to all pages yet very clean and unsoiled throughout. An intensely interesting little handbook with several b/w photo plates included. An uncommon subject with detailed notes on grammar as well as a comprehensive translation of thousands of words to and from English.
