Bound in original, contemporary full calf with 5 raised bands, partially faded name on front cover, no title visible. Exlibris on front paste down. We found some pages misnumbered but in the correct position, some unnumbered and collated in the wrong place (note laid in). However, the book is complete with all pages..
Professional older repair of binding, paste downs and end papers are also of a later date. Despite soiling of various degrees, wear of margins of outer pages and, well worn but solid binding, the book is in very good shape considering the age.
