Russell Large paper copy upper cover

Over my more than 50 year career I have owned several copies of the regular edition of Russell's book on the Atlantic Telegraphy.  However, this is the first copy of the large paper edition that I ever owned. I was attracted to this copy by the fine condition of the original cloth binding, or which you see the upper cover here. I think it it is a very tasteful adaptation of the ornately decorated cover of the regular edition.
