The protected cover, in light blue cloth with gilt titling to spine and impressed titling to front, is in good condition commensurate with age with light bumping and shelfwear to spine extremities and a little fading to spine. Internally tyhe book is in good, clean and tight condition with bright text pages and illustrations and no tears, creases, inscriptions or significant marks.
