On note of condition, this volume is in fair shape, with the front board only holding on by several threads, and the back board holding on significantly better. The binding is heavily worn and rubbed down in general. The bottom corner of the title has torn off with some text loss from the imprint. There is some slight toning, with little to no foxing throughout.
