Very gently read if at all. Neat gift inscription in pencil to the ffep, stain to the gutter between pp.viii and pp. ix, odd finger smudge, otherwise the interior is clean and free of markings. Front hinge is starting but very firmly attached. Bright gilt titles and devices to spine and front board. Small scuff to the front board with handful of stains to the rear board.
