Booklet is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time, same with newspaper. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Bindings gently age worn, signs of handling but nothing offensive or severe, remains overall attractive as an object.
Pamphlet/ chapbook paper is gently toned, spine with modern black tape, typical foxing, one leaf repaired long ago with loss of text, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive since both are rare items.
Please review photos for more detail showing how each item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.
