Binding age worn, cloth worn and fraying along the edges, joints scuffed, covers rubbed, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is toned, light minor soiling in some blank margins, 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.
