Condition is good only–split to base of spine, the front has some tearing to overhanging edges and there is a stain at upper left that diminished but extends throughout the book. Pencil number on front endpaper. The string binding is intact. Still a beautiful specimen of Hunter’s and the Roycrofter’s work, and packed with reference information.
