CONDITION

A good complete volume I. The original binding is worn with cracking to the hinges but with both boards attached (front board a bit shaken). Pages good throughout and free from spotting. Perhaps the odd thumb mark. One page has a closed tear. The title page has a little tearing to the bottom gutter and also has some browning to the bottom margin which repeats on the next 3 pages. Overall a good complete volume.
