We previously bought and/or sold this book in the following, or similar, condition:
Wrapper: The evocative period wrapper on this copy is bright, very clean, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows light bruising to the spine ends and gentle soiling to the back panel. Looks very sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The gilt lettering on the spine is rubbed. The pages are clean and bright. No foxing. The closed page edges are fresh. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges or dog-eared pages. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
