Condition

This is a scarce and complete copy. The binding is in good order but the boards are rubbed quite heavily to the edges, as is the leather to the joints, corners, and spine ends. The inner binding is secure, all plates have foxing, most noticeably to the margins. Some corner folding to the endpapers but otherwise an intact copy.
