In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, cloth splitting to the joints, and bumping to the head and tail of the spine and extremities. Shelf wear to the boards. Internally, hinges are starting. Pages from the front free-endpaper to page 8 are held by a single cord, and will likely detach with further handling. Remaining binding is very tender. Rear advert is detached but present. A few spots to the pages, more prominent to the first and last few pages, though pages are otherwise generally bright and clean.
