Dustwrapper a little rubbed and worn to extremities; tear towards tail of spine resulting in a creased, triangular flap that had an old sellotape repair with staining – tape now removed and replaced with archival tape; reverse side also a touch dusty and marked from the marbled boards. Gilt to cloth spine dulled; cloth a touch mottled; pages a touch dusty but generally clean; plates clean and bright.

Nonetheless, a particularly nice, attractive copy – quite lovely.
