Light shelf wear to edges of boards, occasional light scuff or mark to leather. Page edges a touch grubby and marked from handling, light scratches and rubbing to top edge gilt; page corners a touch bumped in places, some corner creasing; pages a little dusty in places but generally clean throughout.

Overall, light wear but otherwise a lovely, clean copy – attractive in its custom slipcase.
