The leather covers (in lighter tan) are contented and comfortable. They have very light wear and they too, have some handling marks. Within, the title page has a previous owner signature and date. The contents are evocative, comfortable. The pages have light flecks of aging marks throughout. Nonetheless, the pages are clean, clear, confident, tidy, neat, tight. An agreeable copy. fk.
