From late 1800s
Highest page number is 162

The first couple pages are detached from the spine but still there and complete.

One page (91) is torn across but still present and can be repaired.

The spine is still intact but not solid, could use repair.

There are some minor smudges and very minor marks as you would expect for a book that is around 125 years old.

Hand written words on last (blank) page of name and address of previous owner.

This book is fully illustrated with many outstanding black and white drawings.

I did not want to tape or glue anything together.

I have seen these books sell for A LOT of money and figured the final owner may want to do the minor repairs themselves or have it done.

contact me with questions, I will answer if I can.
