Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, cover with stains and dustiness, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is clean, some old light damp staining across the top of the text block which in spots has adhered some pages together (readily separated with letter opener), any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention given the scarcity of the publication.
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.
