Binding age worn, front cover has curled corners, lower right corner torn off and slightly incorrectly re-affixed with old (now dried) cello tape, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, book remains overall attractive as an object.
Paper is gently toned, internally still clean, tight, sound internally.
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.
