All of my books are VERY OLD and have 100+ years of wear to varying degrees. Boards - very secure, some small spots to the covers. Spine ends - pretty good.Inner hinges - very good back - front 1 cracked. Pages - generally very clean but toned [still very flexible]. Writing - one little note erased off a page. Rips /folds - no rips that I saw - 1 fold & 1 very small edge chip. Similar to Dr Chase - but much more rare!
