133 pp (printed on one side of page only), 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated in b&w with technical drawings/diagrams (some fold out).

The illustration pages inserted between the text pages have handwritten numbers or no numbers at all, indicating that they were probably assembled separately. Sequentially, there is no No. 37, the run of pages 67-69 contains only two illustrations, there is no No. 80 and no No. 132 - however, there is no indication that anything has been removed.
