Condition

The spine is a faded, with a little fading and minor bumping to the boards. There is a slight forward lean to the spine but the book is free from inscription and the pages are clean. There is some foxing to the pages' top edge and fore-edge, and a booksellers sticker to the rear pastedown has offset to the rear endpaper. Otherwise a very good copy in good solid shape.
