I have been collecting books and music for over 35 years and have amassed an enormous collection with many duplicates. I do not subscribe to "grading" as it is so subjective and most of the "graders" truly have no clue! Tfore I'll simply describe things in normal English! *This is a very gently handled and previously read hardcover book, bound in leather with gilt lettering and embellishments to the cover and spine. It is also gilt edged (which has slightly dulled over the years) and has a sewn in ribbon place marker. This is in very, VERY good condition, with no marked, bent or loose pages whatsoever and is worthy of the finest library collections, private or public! Enjoy!

Regarding auctions, let me add that I am a private collector of art, books, music and "stuff" and am very picky about what I buy and I don't like surprises when I buy things from auctions any more than you so so I promise everything I know about this item is in this description. I've sold many, many books and music items on eBay and have only received one complaint in thousands of auctions about the accuracy in my descriptions.
