The Willoughby Captains A School Story

£9.99

Product description

The picture on the cover while having faded slightly is still viewable, and the title is very bright along with the authors name. The cover has some markings to it, and wear and tear, however it still looks to be well kept. There is foxing to many of the pages, including other marks, such as dirt and ink stains or smudges. On a few pages on the top edge is a dirt damp mark. The free endpaper has a previous book shop stamp on it, and the next page has an inscription from 1893. There is some creasing and damage to the edge of a few pages, the binding is also loose. The page edges are uneven. Otherwise the text is readable and the book is in a fair condition for it's age.
