Cloth lightly soiled, some negligible edge bumping and a few remainings of old stains on the first three pages and another one at page 20, resulting in some minor damage when the pages were first opened again. Please see pict. nrs. 4 and 11 for the damage caused. Further overall a bright and clean copy.

The whole richly illustrated with 163 photographs, of which 16 unnumbered and the rest numbered 1 - 147. Plate nr. 90 misnumbered 80. Further 22 full page maps, of which 11 partly or fully coloured, plus 9 maps in the text.

The pocket at the rear board contains two very large folding maps, 1180 x 660 mm, one a topographical map of Portuguese Timor, the other the geological map of this country. The maps in a fine condition too.

A very scarce report with only seven copies in WorldCat and no records either in ABPC or RBH/AE.
