On note of condition, this book is in good shape. The decorative gold gilt against the plain white boards serves only to highlight their brightness and shine, despite the staining present. The glue on the spine has long since dried away, but the sturdy paper tissue guards prevent the hinges from cracking. There is staining and foxing present throughout the volume.
