Condition: The book is fully intact with no missing or torn pages, with the exception of the title page which is missing about half an inch of its top margin. The boards are heavily worn but intact. The front board is loosening and beginning to detach at the joint. There is an owner's name on the front pastedown. The pages have varied states of foxing from very light to very heavy and I've included photos of both.
