Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, lower corner of front cover creased, spine stained with some splitting to paper, various signs of handling and time but nothing severe or unsightly, this scarce early 20th century French picture book remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is gently toned, still clean, tight, sound internally. Clearly a much handled book that remains pleasing.
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this book 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.
