Condition A nice clean copy, with a touch of staining to some pages - but quite light and not interfering with text. A touch of light nicking to the edges of some pages. Two early marbeled end papers loosely inserted to the rear of the book. There are a few contemporary annotations & marginalia in a pale brown ink. Do not disturb the text.
Price £460.00
