There is a stain to the front page edges (page edges of the closed book), not affecting the inner pages. Internally, the front inner hinge is completely split with the front cover and half title page separating from the rest of the text block; the sewn binding is very shaky with many signatures split at their gutter but still holding together by the binding threads; the pages are toned, some have edge and corner creases and wear; nonetheless a complete copy with clean and unmarked pages and printing that remains bright and clear.
