Attractive near-miniature antiquarian full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding age worn but still appealing, leather, edges and joints scuffed but still supple, some old surface crackling, most of spin gilt rubbed down, book remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is age toned as typical, some staining in the gutter of first 33 pages or so, some light old damp staining to many pages, book covers bow slightly outward from thickness of text block, some page corners creased or curled, still tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but has been well used and does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this small little pocket sized book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
