A clean and very pleasing example, nicer than typical.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding only gently age worn, mostly light or inoffensive signs of handling and time but nothing severe or unsightly, slight bit of scuffing along the joints, tips of spine ends ever so slightly worn, book remains overall exceptionally bright and attractive as an object for display.
Paper is gently toned, still clean, tight, sound internally.
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.
