All of my books are VERY OLD and have 100+ years of wear to varying degrees. Very secure -much discoloration to the covers -especially the back /small bubbles to the left of the gilt man on front. Good, cracked once but pages secure. Outer joints - very good. Inner hinges - very good. Pages - Very good condition, clean & bright. Rips /folds - none that I saw, but there has been a small [maybe 1" by 1/2"] repair to a page tip - not effecting the text.
Other - Gilt remains quite bright. DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER BOOKS. Add me to your Favorites list.AND check back now and then to see what's new! Otherwise I can't send you a new invoice. T can take up to 14 days to get back East.
This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. 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. As far as I can tell -this book has no smell.
