This has been recovered with gold lettering on the spine. The cover is fine, with no stains, tears or fade. The only extraneous elements are a personal bookplate (Virides Fecere Merendo) to the inside front cover and a hand-drawn scroll framing a gift note, from E. Jermyn to I. H. Newton, dated November 28th, 1813, on a blank front end page. The pages are near fine, with a few light creases to the outside bottom corners of the last few pages, and a few light spot stains to those same areas. Most pages have no flaws. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages.
There are no page tears. The above photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions.
