Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, spots of old staining to covers and title page, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, some slight red staining along edges in blank margin of title and some early plates, 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.
