Publisher's thick lettered cloth binding, spine gilt, text block edges printed with advertising.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding well age worn, cloth splitting along joints, covers loosened, spine tears, a few pages defective, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
A monumental production, a staggering level of detail, endless advertising section at rear (almost 500 pages!).
Text block paper is mostly clean, internally well preserved, little staining or soiling, 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.
