Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.
Bindings gently age worn, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, lot remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is heavily uniformly toned as inevitable given the cheap newsprint paper stock used when published 130 years ago, internally still clean, tight, sound internally.
Still attractive on the shelf. The lot 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.
