Paper covers gently age worn, slight rubbing, small edge chips, various small flaws from handling, lot remains overall clean and attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, perhaps a couple loose pages, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The fragile pamphlet lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
