Spine ends and board corners are bumped. Front hinge has weakened and some cracking noted to rear hinge but boards are securely attached and binding is holding up well. Endpapers are age toned with a few foxing marks but still very attractive. Foxing on margins of half title page, title page and contents pages and noted the contents page also has a small pencil tick next to the title of a story and please see image. Foxing on closed edge pages although not considered to be heavy foxing and the odd foxing mark in margins of text and backing page to plates but pages are clean.
Noted a few pages have been clumsily cut or roughly opened causing a slight loss on edges but text is not affected. Plates are all in good condition.
If you would like a recorded signed for service, please let me know and I will amend the invoice. I try to keep postal costs as low as possible and books are always carefully well packed using a combination of acid free tissue, bubblewrap and corrugated card/cardboard. A multiple order will always be packed in a box. Magazines and paperback books are always dispatched in reinforced cardboard backed envelopes usually with additional cardboard.
