Notable issues: Sunning darkening to the spine with edge wear, losses to the lower, top, split and edge separation, seam and brittle and the glue has separated from the binding. Covers show shelf wear, dirt, some darkening and discoloration corner wear chipping with front cover inside nearly split from the spine and needing a proper taping. Losses to the cloth on the edges with fraying. Slight bowing to the covers. Binding is good and intact with some weaker areas with the book though the book is not straight. Pages are overall good with a lot of foxing/spotting & tanning throughout. Outside of the above, I did not note any writing, but that is not to say that it was not missed.
