Booklet is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, signs of handling but nothing offensive or severe, remains overall attractive as an object.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
