Lacking the half-title leaf. Rebound by amateur binder in half leather. Gilt lettering and mock bands on spine. Endpapers replaced. Quite extensive scattered wormholes throughout, the holes being very tiny (about 1mm diameter) do not obliterate any complete letters, and so do not much obstruct the reading of the text. Crudely stitched internally. Gutter split between pages 2 and 3. Folding map with a 3 1/2" tear, and extensive scattered tiny wormholes (1mm diameter).; (iii)-viii, 322, [2 (blank)] pages + 32 pages advertisements + folding lithograph map (one colour tint + water areas printed in blue). Publisher's advertisement leaf on pink paper stitched in during rebinding ("Just Published - The Land of the Five Rivers [. . .] Also by the Same Author Military Transport by Indian Railways [. . .]"). Rebound. Page dimensions: 222 x 138mm. "My object in publishing these 'Sketches' is to furnish travellers passing through Sindh and the Punjab with a short historical and descriptive account of the country and places of interest between Karachi, Multan, Lahore, Peshawar, and Delhi. I mainly confine my remarks to the more prominent cities and towns adjoining the railway system. Objects of antiquarian interest and the principle arts and manufactures in the different localities are briefly noticed. I have alluded to the independent adjoining States, and I have added outlines of the routes to Kashmir, the various hill sanitaria, and of the marches which may be made in the interior of the Western Himalayas." - from the Preface, page vii.
