Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding rubbed, lightly soiled and age worn, faint light old damp staining to rear cover and bottom edge of final few pages (easy to miss), remains overall attractive as a 19th century photography book.
Text block paper is clean, internally well preserved, all plates clean, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
Still attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
