Lot is over 150 years old and shows clear signs of handling and time. Items are not new or in "new" condition. Extracted from a bound volume like many uncommon 19th century periodicals.
Paper gently age worn, slight rubbing, lot remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Paper is lightly toned, some pages loose or detached as typical, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and overall is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
