Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Small chip to the front joint. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. A few light marks to the boards and spine. A touch of fading to the spine. Front hinge is starting to the textblock but remains firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just a few spots to the endpapers.

Very Good
