Vintage book, about a century old, and still in fairly good condition, though not perfect. The pages are generally clean and tidy, but yellowed with age. One page has some pencil scribbles - this is a blank page, so it doesn't interfere with the legibility of the book. The covers are scuffed and marked from normal use. Spine lightly creased. Quite adequate for reading, but not a pristine "collectors' copy". Previous owner's name and old price markings on flyleaf.
