Interior contents very fresh and clean, a pleasing age patina, largely free of age spotting. Jacket well preserved, small chipping at spine ends, uniform darkening as typical. Baedeker dust jackets are uniformly scarce/ rare as they were plain and intended to be discarded as soon as the book was bought and started being used.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
