Please read the refund policy below -if you need more details about the condition, please ask! Very Good condition for its age -Text and boards secure. Light wear to the tips. No rips or folds. A few small spots inside, but the last 150 or so pages have staining in the corners [ starts out small and gets bigger and darker towards the back of the book -see the last 2 pictures. actually starts out much smaller & lighter than shown]. Small pin hole back edge of spine. If it weren't for the stains, I'd call it near fine for its age! Tip to Remember, old books are fragile- when opening an old book, always have the front cover supported! It's best to place the whole book on a soft pillow, one that the spine can sink into.A fantastic RARE & EARLY book on England, America, and more! please Add me to your Favorites list AND check back now and then to see what's new!
