Superb first edition of the 29th volume in this annual compilation almost always in wretchedly compromised condition, though here clean and lovely. Two diagrams preceding title page show the "Senate Chamber" and the "Assembly Chamber," listing all members and labeling their seats; pristine and charming maps at rear outline in red the "Congressional Districts," "Judicial Circuits," "Senate District-Map" and "Assembly District-Map." Printed slip tipped to rear pastedown notes "Compliments of / Charles H. Baxter, / Senator, 16th Dist." Delightful copy!
