Binding a touch worn and rubbed, especially to tail of spine at front board; light staining to front board; spine a little faded and discoloured. Owner inscription to first blank; occasional foxing and dustiness but generally pages very clean throughout.

Overall, light wear but remains a very nice copy – a handsome binding.
