Fitzgerald. This is Volume VII only of the full work, completely in Latin, including all titles and notations. (The author's name is recorded as "Liber Baro Ferdinandus De Mueller" followed by his qualifications and honours, also all in Latin, which fill a very large paragraph indeed, of very small type.)

The head of the spine is worn, other corners are lightly worn, and edges foxed, but the binding is sound & tight.
