This book has the most gorgeous cover, with gilt floral illustration on the spine and on the front and back boards. The boards themselves are dark brown with more floral illustration in a lighter shade of brown. The edges of the text block are also gilt.
The top and bottom of the spine are worn, with a very small tear in the top of the spine. The corners of the boards are a little bent and there is a small dent (less than a centimetre) about halfway down the middle of the front board. The spine is in good condition, the binding is secure and all pages are present.
Overall photos cannot do justice to this book. For its age it is in very good condition, and will make a lovely addition to any bookshelf.
