In the original cloth with paper covered boards. Externally very smart with a little wear to the extremities and a little bumping to the head and tail of the spine. The text block is untrimmed and the foredge is a little dusty as a result. The free endpapers are a little foxed. Internally clean and bright, and firmly bound.
