This pocket souvenir view book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently rubbed and age worn, folding view text block split into two parts along fold line, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, some toning and edge wear, 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 19th century Expo view book survives.
