Condition

In the publisher's original red cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Lightly rubbed to the boards, more so to the spine, with a tear in the cloth at the rear joint. The head and tail of the spine are beginning to fray a little. The front hinge has failed so that the front board flaps away from the text block. The rear hinge is starting and is tender. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are lightly age-toned but clean.
