This volume measures 10.5"L x 8"W x 4.5"H and is missing the first few pages that would normally include the copyright. The condition is generally fair to good with a few front pages that are crimped, folded or torn. Other than that the book is complete, shows honorable wear commensurate with modest use and age. Various pages have small partial folds and the spine is separated from the binding . The leather binding is modestly worn mostly on the edges.
A great addition and resource for your collection!
