Some foxing and tanning to endpapers, some foxing to text block, mostly a few pages towards the end, some tanning to spine panel, as is usually the case. Overall, a superior copy of a scarce book seldom found in nice condition. Among the better copies we have seen. (#144971). N° de réf. du libraire
