Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition, slightly "cocked" (askew while sitting on the shelf).
Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed, small wear and chipping at spine ends, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this rare 19th century heraldry book survives.
