Water stain to front board across title, not obscuring the gilt. Spine a little sunned and discoloured. Patches of scuffing and darkening to binding, relatively minor. Colours and gilt are still nice and clear. Light spotting to prelims, then infrequently throughout. Pages clean and bright. Overall good+ condition. 96 pp. Pretty copy of a scarce little book.
