Book overall in very good condition and is a great rebind. There is no reserve price.

The front and back covers and adverts are in tact but the photoplate is missing.  Other than this the pages are complete and in very good condition with an odd mark and foxing spot here and there but nothing significant.  There are two tiny tiny tears on pages iii and 431 at the top (barely visible, about 1mm) and pages ii and iii have very slightly thinned where previously stuck together but this is minor (see picture).

The gilt is in tact and bright on both the front cover and the spine.  There is some creasing to the front and back boards and a couple of small marks to the front (barely visible) but the overall impression is really good. 

The hinges are good (tiny tear in the front at the top, about 1cm) and the binding is firm even though there is a very slight slant in the spine (see picture). There is a small amount of marking to the edges of the pages at the top (barely visible) and they have browned with age due to the quality of the paper available at that time.

A really smashing, clean, bright and tight copy.

Postage of £3.75 first class recorded to the UK. Overseas buyers welcome postage will be at cost for sending the book and requiring this to be signed for to ensure safe delivery.
