The white lettering on the front cover is worn off in some spots but legiable. The spine title is pressed, but no lettering color, a bit hard to see. The hardcover has 104 pages. Many of the terms defined are terms used for various building features from the Roman era, to present. Lots of illustrations! This book measures 5 x 7.5". Also included is a folded group of reference architectural that also has a few additional pages of ornamental architectural pictures, most not shown in the book. These pages were folding and in the book when I bought it, so I am including them in this offer! Many designs that are not in most books I have seen on this subject!
