The book is in good condition for its age, though the pages show signs of handling – some more so than others. A handful have some light foxing, but have resisted tanning (except for the gutter). The front board has a small stain and some light marks (refer to image), whilst the rear is in very good condition. The spine is bumped and has a small ½ cm (0.2″) chip on the tail.
A rare survivor.
Measures 19.5 cm × 25 cm (7.8″ × 10″). 8vo. Unpaginated.
