On the title page it lists the precise distribution of the approximately 191 copies printed (10 copies to Army Engineering Headquarters, and 10 to the Corps of Engineering Headquarters and so on). Black cloth backed buff printed card wrappers (as issued) corners a trifle creased and some minor signs of handling.
