The black end papers have two small cut-outs from a catalog or newspaper composed in bookseller catalog format (British catalog - price in shillings) . They are tipped in near the spine. The hinge appears to have been neatly reinforced at some time. There are no marks or writing on the end papers except for a tiny graphite code on the rear end paper. The interior pages are all crisp and clean except for two small spots on two separate pages. There is a graphite price and code on the recto of the front end paper. All edges are a bright gilt.
