It features the Corporation of London coat of arms in red and black, supported by two gryphons, and the mace, with the motto "Domine dirige nos" underneath. The border of upper cover is framed with staves, surrounded by greenery. A bee and a beehive are printed on the top corners. Printed at the top in red is "/ The system Leighton/". The lower cover has a hexagon divided into triangles, showing North, North-East, South-East, South, South-West, North-West. The South triangle is sub-divided into sixteen smaller triangles. The publication of this work is mentioned in a small article in the Exeter and Plymouth Gazette - Tuesday 18 February 1902 page 8 col. 6. Text copyright Edmund King.
