Fancy work this chapter has 63 sections! Total of 32 chapters and countless subsections! As they are part of the description. Back cover looks just as good as the front but with a few small spots. Tips lightly worn through and back bottom tip bumped a bit. Gilt on cover still bright. Boards and text secure, but the front inner hinge was cracked and has been glued back into place. Pages are all generally very clean.
With just a few, and I mean very few, spots, but they are toned around the edges. 2 small rips repaired with doc tape, 1 page with a fold, something shadowed onto an index page, and lengthy'this book belonged to.... written in pen on the ffep.
Otherwise - very good for age! If I missed something it was unintentional.
Remember - when opening an old book, always have the cover supported! It's best to place it on a soft pillow. VERY RARE VICTORIAN BOOK - grab it before it's gone! Please Add me to your Favorites list.

Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to.So the old book smell doesn't bother me.
