entirely revised; black titles spine; illustrated by b/w. line drawings; small fold-out AA map of roads approaching City; loose but present are both the map of Cambridge and the plan of laboratories and museums; "in this Guide the author does not give an exhaustive account of Cambridge, but merely draws the attention of a Visitor, who has only a short time at his disposal, to those places and things which appear to be the most important. Described in some detail are the Scientific Museums and Laboratories which of late years have been so largely developed by the University; as also the Botanic Garden, the Observatory, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the Museum of General and Local Archeology and of Ethnology. The author has also constructed Four Walks, in the course of which everything of importance can be at least looked at; and, lastly, for the convenience of those who are too much hurried to undertake these, he has constructed a Fifth Walk, in which those places only are mentioned which in his judgment are indispensable. Prefixed to these walks is a brief Introduction to the history of the Town, the University and the Colleges."; wear, tears & stains to covers with half of spine missing & small piece from outer corner of rear; corner-creases to bottom of many pages; 200 pages including index - plus local adverts pages at each end.
