Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding paper well age worn, joints with some splitting to cloth, covers a bit loosened from text block as often seen with city directories due to use, a couple advertising leaves edge chipped, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
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.
