Gilt chevron edging to boards all but rubbed away, wear to corners, board surfaces well preserved. Insides tight and servicable with excessive cropping to top edges, not quite touching the text.

Text blocks are tight and in good order with usual age effects and some wear to edges but no excessive problems or missing leaves. Not considered to be of great merit as a translation but quite scarce. TP + 258pp, xii+273pp+3pp adv, TP + 321pp. Books measure 3-1/4 by 5-1/4 inches. Size 24mo
