Condition despite being an ex library copy, this is a lovely example of this work. The boards are clean and tidy, with the gilt still bright. Internally, generally clean and tidy. There is the odd foxing spot, but little handling other than the library marks. These perhaps forgiven on an item of this scarcity. The hand coloured plates are clean and tidy (the library stamps not having bled through).
