Publisher's green ribbed cloth with gold stamping on the spine. Spine is leaning. Top edge gilt; fore-edge and bottom edge roughly trimmed. Cloth is rubbed and edge-worn with darkening along the spine. Rear joint is worn and beginning to split. There appears to have been a repair to the upper portion of the front joint, probably reattaching a split in the cloth. Spine ends are fraying and split. Endpapers are uniformly darkened and hinges are tender. Front free endpaper is lightly chipped and almost detached. Good.
