CONDITION: Please view all the gallery photos , they are part of the description. The covers have been re-attached as mentioned..
The gilt stamping on the cover is excellent. The text block is held tight still , but I had to use some binders glue to re-attach the first signature (16 pages).. The spine is still quite strong , even without the leather cover. If the new owner desires , they could have it re-bound , or just new covers/spine put on.
No foxing, or musty odors. The text is very clean , with no major rips, or tears, (some minor edge - chipping near the front) The 4-color Frontispiece did have a tear , that I repaired with document repair tape, from the back. There is a 9 inch section of the back-spine.
With the gilt embossing , that was with this book, and that will be included, as it may be able to put back on , if it is re-bound. It is a very nice copy.And These are very hard to find, as original. Thanks for viewing our listing , and good luck! Wait for the corrected invoice , before you pay.. The cost quote above is not accurate.. This is eBays' new system, and I have no control over the way they have decided to run their business model..
