Binding age worn, cloth splitting along joints (covers still well attached), yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is toned but clean, internally well preserved, minor staining or soiling, early owner has written numbers at top of title page for his own personal library, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
Still attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
