No significant marks to the boards. There is a slight forwards lean to the spine. Top edge tinted blue (though now faded and grey). The binding is quite firm; inner hinges are very good. Some light foxing and thumbing / handling marks to pages throughout. More significant foxing to the outer closed textblock page edges and to first and last few pages. Two previous owner's names and addresses written on front endpaper, one of which has been heavily rubbed out, causing abrasions to the paper. Similar abrasions to the top edge of the front pastedown; presumable names have been erased there too. pp. 256.
