A contemporary review of this book here http://www.naval-review.org/pasp/..%5Cissues%5C1930-2.pdf on page 410

The faded spine is obvious when compared to the front board which can be seen when the cursor is moved over the title page; note sharp corners!
To revert to image of the title page remove the cursor. The title page is amongst the worst; most pages have only a very small amount of brown spots.
