Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
