Condition

In a half vellum binding, with paper covered boards. Externally, very smart. A few light marks to the vellum. Small split to the head of front joint. Prior owner's inscription to the verso of front endpaper, Katherine Leeds, Selva Dolce. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned, due to paper used. Chips to the edges of the final two leaves. Just the odd spot to pages.

Very Good Indeed
