The cloth is worn to the boards along 1 1/2' of the right edge of the front cover starting in the upper right corner; gilt-lettering on the spine a little worn; the front blank page (probably the flyleaf) has a previous owner's name inscribed in ink (Henry Shoop with the date December, 12, 1858) & a presentation 'Mabel F. Wright/ Her Book - June 1926/ From Miss Agnes Felix'; scattered foxing throughout with most pages tanned; occasional very minimal spots of soil, pencil checks, & small notes.
