Wolff. The US edition preceded the British edition by six years. There are four full-page color plates and many other illustrations, including one full-page, which are in black, white, and shades of peach. The book is fine, but the dust jacket shows wear at the spine ends and corners, with a few additional creases and tiny closed tears. Quite attractive.
