The front cover has a nice hand colored illustration. Some of the binding strings are missing, but all of the pages are still partially attached with either one or two strings. The string binding is slightly loose. The pages are lightly toned from age but are generally clean, though there is likely the occasional page with a small imperfection such as a minor bit of foxing smudging, light wrinkle, creased page corner, small chip or tear, etc. All in all a really nice rare chapbook.
The book measures approximately 6 1/4 inches by 4 1/8 inches. This appears to be a rather scarce title, at the time of this listing I was unable to find another example for sale. Please look at the photos to further note the condition and message me with any questions you might have.
