Boards show considerable Front free endpaper detached but present. First pages (until first page of Preface) are missing. Remainder of the book is fully intact.

Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Quarter Leather, Marbled Endpapers. Good condition for its age. A small bookplate is glued to the inside of the front cover. The pages have tanned slightly with age. The pages having a full-page illustration have foxing in the margins, probably due to contact with the tissue guard, and a yellowed outline of the illustration has bled onto the tissues. I found four pages with a creased corner. The cover has scraped/frayed edges and corners but looks good for its age. The gilt edges have dulled. The binding remains sturdy.
