¶ It appears that the binding was previously cracked, and a former owner caused repairs to be done. All parts are present, and the hinges are not split (indeed the endpapers are in very good condition), but the book is tight to open and if pressed open too far would, no doubt, split apart. There is some light scribbling on a few pages, but nothing untoward. The colour pastedown on the front board is a bit scuffed and soiled, and rubbed at the edges. Overall, the book may be read with care, and is in fair to good condition.
