Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding age worn, joints slightly scuffed, edges and corners worn and frayed, slight staining to cover cloth, rear cover with some scattered old white stains, etc- remains overall attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently toned, light scattered age spotting, large old damp stain in top blank margin of many pages. 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.
