The head of the spine strip has a small remnant of brown paper at the head and a small ink stain towards the tail; there is a bookplate on both the front and back end paper; the blank page is discoloured around the edges; the fore-edge foxed and the head of the back paste down is lightly damaged, possibly from the removal of a label. Overall an attractive copy, clean and solid.
