This is a scare and desirable book from 1900. As the picture shows the covers show clear signs of wear and age. Both the front and rear covers show fading, blemishes, some indentations and creases, and general marking/grubbiness. The spine and pages edges also display wear including bent and rounded edges/corners and a tear to the top of the spine.

Inside the pages are generally quite decent. There is some foxing scattered throughout - but most obvious to the opening few pages, and a small blank ink scribble on the inside title page. There are also a number of blemishes to pages, including a number of smudges/markings. That said, many of the pages are in clean condition for the books age. The book is illustrated in colour but also has a few nice black and white etchings.
