Binding gently age worn, spine ends cloth slightly worn/ frayed, book is very slightly "cocked", mostly light or inoffensive signs of handling and time but nothing severe or unsightly, book remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is toned, scattered small stains and spotting throughout, book has been handled and looked through and is slightly loosened as a result (nothing severe but full disclosure is the aim here).
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
