Pages are in pristine condition! No fingerprints! No foxing! Known issues: I looked hard to find anything wrong with this book! There is an area, at the inside edge, on the back of the moire silk endpapers, that is slightly discolored, (looks like where the fabric was glued to the paper).Also, there is a tiny area, on the front board, between the clasp and the shield, that is slightly lighter in color than the rest of the binding. It is barely noticible.
Please take the time to look at all the pictures! They are an accurate depiction of the condition of this book, and are considered a part of the description!
