This book is in good condition. There is wear on the binding, edges, covers and the pages are yellowed but this is to be expected considering the age of the book, (134 years old). There is writing on the inside cover of the book (name of previous owner). The front and back covers are stained and there is writing on the back cover. The binding is bit loose but sturdy. This is definitely a book that has been around and read a lot.
