The verso of the free front endpaper shows some separation at the hinge (not visible from the front) - probably due to the thickness of the paper. Very minor wear at top/bottom corner of rear board and at bottom of rear hinge, very minor wear on bottom edge of both boards, small light scuff (approx. 3/4") to gilt on top of text block. A very handsome production. Additional pictures available on request. Very Good+ to Near Fine
