Almost certainly a random group of once loose issues an early owner took to be bound.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, signs of handling, some old staining, slight cloth wear in spots along edges of boards, but nothing offensive or severe, remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is gently uniformly age toned, 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.
