Period full tree calf leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & title within stamped compartments. Nice old book.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time but is nicer than typically found for this era. Item is not in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, small scuffs, yet still remains tight, clean, supple, and overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is spotted throughout, internally still tight, any specific flaws of a mostly 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.
