Edges are rounded throughout, more dogeared to first and final few gatherings. First few leaves present in Old Testament notably ragged and creased, some more notable damp marking to lower third of first seven or so gatherings: double page map ragged and torn, largely split up centre fold: lower corner of Psalms titlepage torn away, loss almost touching into imprint: final few leaves present in Psalms creased, the last a little ragged.
