The remaining page fore-edges are deckle-edged (rough-cut) and with some light foxing (pale brownish spots) flecking the more exposed edges. Internally overall Very Good. The odd light foxing spot here and there, but o/w, apart from a former owners' neat name and date (V. Giardelli 1902) to the front free endpaper, there are no other inscriptions or major marks.
