Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time, slightly "cocked" (askew) when sitting on a shelf upright (could be remedied by pressing book under weight to correct). Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, spine leather rubbed and scuff abraded but still supple, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, clean, tight, sound, tissue guards present throughout as issued to plates.
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.
