Though the front free endpaper has been removed, tidily but exposing a thin line of net at the front hinge, and the pages bear gentle age-toning throughout, the interior is otherwise clean and excellent. The binding remains square and secure, the hard cover somewhat softened at the spine ends and gently rubbed at spine ends and corners, otherwise excellent. Jacket bears some fading at the spine, chipping and short creases at the spine ends, and one tiny, open tear at the spine head as well as a little shelf wear at the corners, but is otherwise well-kept, now protected in a clear sleeve.
