Full leather binding with mottled finish.
Wear to all surfaces and edges, the underlying board is exposed on the corners, one of which is bumped.
The spine has 5 bands, the gilt title being in the second section down with a once red background. The other sections are heavily decorated in gilt.
The pastedowns are torn at the hinge but the hinges are still firm, with no looseness.
The endpapers and all page ends are marbled.
No inscriptions, but there is occasional underlining in pencil.
Internally the book is in remarkably good condition, the binding is still tight in many places with little sign of use.
There is some foxing, as usual, mostly affecting the early and later pages and the page edges.
The red page marker ribbon is still intact, although the end is a little worn.
Overall this item is very good condition and well preserved for its age, in no way is it delicate.
Will suit collector.
