Unique and rare book.
Plasticine (?) covers with inlay design, original ornate functional metal clasp (rear clasp loose but still works and keeps book closed).
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, book remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is heavily and well uniformly age toned due to paper used, internally still clean, tight, sound internally. Hinges cracked and repaired, covers still firmly and well attached.
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this book survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books, maps and printed ephemera of all types and genres. Flaws seen and/ or described have been taken into account.
