Inside, the front hinge is lightly cracked, the rear is intact, and the endpapers have light age toning and a little foxing. The Book Belongs to page has a pencil inscription. All 12 plates are present and in very good shape, though there is some toning and foxing on pages opposite, and age toning throughout.
