Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands, gilt title lettering, embossed cover decorations.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Scarce little book in any condition.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is well age toned as typical, light old inoffensive damp staining throughout, scattered light age stains and spots, lacks front free endpaper, internally book remains mostly tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this rare book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
