In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. Some minor marks to the boards and spine. Light bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. A touch of fading to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very lightly age-toned and clean, with a couple of very light handling marks.
