Light markings and spotting to the boards. Front hinge is starting but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean throughout, with just the odd scattered spot to the first and last few pages. Ink inscription to the recto of the front free endpaper, 'Francis H Roach, Middle IVth, Class Prize, Xmas 1886, G C Bell, Master'.
