This is about the best copy of this first edition I have ever seen. The guidebook is still published by the Adirondack Mountain Club, although now it is in its 15th edition and has spawned a huge series of books each dedicated to a different part of the park. Dark green paper wraps with light wear, but otherwise very presentable and well preserved. Scuffs/crease at spine and general edgewear. Both front and rear hinges have reinforcing tape (archival quality repair cloth) inside the cover, but I have seen this on every copy of this book I have sold and it seems it was produced this way. Faint red ink stamp "Compliments of the Albany Chapter" on first page. Small pencil notes to last index page. Pages in very good or better condition. No rips or tears to pages. Rear fold-out map very nice. The first map is a "Key Map of the Adirondack Park" showing the boundaries and a key the USGS quadrangles. The second is a full fold out map of high peaks trails. The map is black and white with red trails, and covers the quadrangles of Saranac, Lake Placid, Ausable, Santanoni, Mt. Marcy and Elizabethtown. It is wonderful to compare trail maps and see which trails still exist. Also included is a section on a recommended Adirondack library, again very interesting to see what was recommended at that time. Please see images. 116 pages.
