Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, spine frayed and chipped, cover detached with some neat archival tape repairs on reverse, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, booklet remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is gently toned, internally still clean, tight, sound internally. Very nice internally, a pleasing pictorial production and apparently uncommon/ scarce title from this well known prolific publisher.
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.
