Beautifully tooled decoration to front and back with gilt pattern around edge. Very intricate gilt design on spine with 4 raised bands. Worn on the corners with some leather loss, nevertheless still very neat and delicate. Marbled end papers, neat faded ink signature inside prelims. Beautiful frontispiece and title page engravings by J. W. Cook. The hinge is tight and sound, there is some darkening and staining most noticeable to the first few pages, and some pages have corners creased, but a solid and very attractive little book.
