___CONDITION: Volume is good plus, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the pages are clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; some soiling to the boards, especially to the rear board, which appears to be two spots of spilled ink, rubbing to the head and tail of the spine and to the corners, corners are gently bumped, and there is a faint, old dampstain to the fore-edge margins of the first fifty or so pages. We are rating the volume as good plus due to the condition of the binding, as the interior is clean overall with strong hinges.
