Very gently read. Interior is clean excepting the odd small stain. Bright gilt titles and devices to spine. Elaborately stamped and decorated in black and gilt to the front board with beautiful inlaid floral device with blue "Cowper" title. Blue cloth boards are moderately rubbed to extremities with some soiling to rear board. Damp stain to the fore-edge that penetrates only the first and last handful of pages. Gilt edges all the way 'round.
