First & last leaf sl.foxed and the 2 leaves of "explication of the plate" & the De Bry plate have text & plate printed on India paper & mounted on stiffish mounts. These mounts show marginal damp mark not affecting the India paper. *Plates "on India" are often "special" copies of books, issued for more discerning customers at a higher price, as the India paper takes a crisper, better ink impression than printing on ordinary paper. An interesting paper delivered by Dr.Cleland, a lecturer on Mecical Jurisprudence in the School of Medicine in submission as a candidate for admission to the faculty of Physicians & Surgeons. Also includes a good bibliography on tobacco (cf. Wellcome 11, p.357 which lacks the final page).
