The book is in very good condition, bound in full black leather with blindstamped decorations on the spine. The leather is rubbed along the hinges and bumped at the corners. The endpapers are split along the hinges, but the book is still tightly bound. There are some light marks and very occasional light spots of foxing, but the plates are generally clean and bright. Each plate is preceded by a blank page. The book stands 21.5 cm tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000906
