There is no title-page, and the text and plates are all in very good condition with some very lightwear on the poem pages (see photos). The first page has a small area of paper loss (?) at the bottom and both the upper right hand corners and the lower binding corners have small wear bumps/creases.The binding is a little loose, butinside gutters are mostlytight.
Thespine is in red cloth with the title clearlyimprinted, but it is a bit worn andloosein places,which can be repaired.Both front and back covers have some rubbing, with some loss on the back cover (see photos). All edges are worn from usage and a former owner's name is penciled above the illustration inside the cover. Overall, I'd say this is in good condition, but it does show its age and wear.
