Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.
Bindings gently age worn, mostly light signs of handling and use, possibly a map or two throughout with fold-line tears, mostly light minor signs of careful handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, lot remains overall attractive on the shelf.
Paper is gently toned, still clean, tight, sound internally. All seem entirely agreeable to us, but not like new.
The lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present appear to us easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this lot survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books, maps and printed ephemera of all types and genres. Flaws seen and/ or described have been taken into account.
