On note of condition, this volume is in fair shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding, and a large tear to the rear cover, going three quarters down the way near to the hinge. The final gathering of pages 193-200 is detached. The text block itself is also loosened from the binding, holding on at the foot of the binding. There is some foxing throughout.
