Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding heavily and well age worn, old paper spine tape repair, some pages loosened, paper tape used within book along gutters to repair, covers almost detached, book remains overall attractive as an object.
Good example of what a much loved story book looks like after 100 years of having been handled and read dozens of time by young hands.
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.
