Exterior covers scuffed and worn, with thinning of cloth in various places, though no glaring flaws corners are bumped and rubbed, wear along spine. Several pages are lightly rippled, interior is marked with 19th century handwriting, chiefly the names of previous owners on the first few pages and back board. The text block itself is clear from writing and shows minimal to mild foxing throughout. Still well bound without any loosening of hinges or pages. An informative look at medicine of old.
