Both covers loose, first few leaves loose, covers separated along front hinge. Internally quite decent, the maps all in good shape. 101 pages of maps (world map, hemispheres, and pages 34-129); also some tables. Copyright is 1887 by Rand, McNally; many of the maps also copyright by Rand, McNally, some dated 1886. Worldcat lists this edition with 3 holdings, and another of this publisher from 1889.
