Rear free endpaper has "Daniel Pierce His Book 1842" in pencil in a child's handwriting - note the spelling of Pearce is different than that of those on front endpapers (that page has a large piece torn out from it). Front free endpaper is torn from top to center hinge and was repaired with clear tape that has slightly yellowed (the rear of that page is the frontispiece). Title page has a 3-inch tear from bottom gutter toward center that was repaired on revers with clear tape that is also slightly yellowed. Page 81 has a small tear near bottom with no loss of text.
