Which first, the goos news, or the bad news? OK, the bad... Covers are uniformly soiled, turning pretty gray. Appears to be mostly accumulated dust. Previous owner cleaned part of the front with an erasure. Didn't hurt the book, but part is cleaner than the rest. Closed chip to the center of the spine, and small irregular chip to the bottom of the spine. Top of the cover & first few pages have been dog-eared, but should flatten out some with time. The book is stapled, with the covers glued on over the spine. Some separation of the cover from the endpapers, simply from opening the book. A binding flaw. The back cover & last few pages have been bent at some time, leaving a slight crease. Now the good news. Except for the flaws noted, the book feels unopened. There are no creases in the spine or covers from opening. It is tight! I would have graded it very good to very good+, if not for the soiling. Overall, not bad for a 107 year old paperback.; 5 1/4x7 3/4"
