Very Good – Solid, firm and well-bound volume. The book has fairly recently been repacked in the original boards with the original spine overlaid onto new cloth. As a result the book is now tight and secure. The boards have some wear with light soiling and some light staining on the rear board. The corners are lightly bumped with wear to the cloth on the corner tips. About 1/4" is missing from both ends of the original overlaid spine. No writing or inscription. Inner hinges are very good. The contents are tight and the book has new black endpapers. The pages are clean apart from a few marks from finger smudges, etc., and a little scattered light staining. There is some slightly more noticeable staining and smudging on page 22 and the facing plate – (Nice & tidy copy) please see the accompanying photographs.
