Condition/Dimensions: It measures 290 x 215 mm (11.5 x 8.5 inches). A well used and loved book. The spine is bumped and tatty. The corners are bumped. The inside has age yellowing with some handling signs and marks. The spine is loose inside. The cover is soiled and worn with handling marks and some historical pen/pencil marks/scribble - please see picture for condition. It's definitely not in great condition but neither would you be at 125 years old!, but still a charming little book. As far as I can tell there are no pages missing; all fifty pages are there plus title pages and end papers. The book will be sent RM small parcels.
