  • Condition

    The cover has scuffs, and fade to the gold lettering and art on a straight spine, which is worn to its ends. The outside corners are bumped. There are no notable stains. The illustrations, front and back, have some color loss, but are bright and clean overall. The connection to the inside is secure. The illustrated inside cover spreads are scuffed, but in good overall condition, with little fade and no stamps, other attachments, or notations. There are no extraneous elements (stamps or notations) throughout the book. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears or creases. The 16 W. Heath Robinson illustrations are in excellent condition, as is all text. The only notable stain is to the outside bottom corners - a darkening from handling
