Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time- it is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, joints well scuffed, spine leather dried, boards rubbed with edge chipping to paper, remains overall attractive as an object. Book opens to title page, which has a small chip at the lower blank corner, and ends with the final index leaf.

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.
