996 pages (complete). Rebound in full leather. The leathered boards are very smart, handsome, clubbable. Spine has five ridges (healthy). Stamped gilt titling (fresh). The contents are healthy and especially fascinating for a 21st century reader/user. The front pages have been well repaired. The title and early pages have some age and usage marks. A fascinating appendix of words new at the time but now of such common use as the origin to be forgotten! Such as: amyl, anode, assegai, baby-farming, bangle, chivey, chlorometer, Khedive, knobstick, methylated and so on! The pages are benevolent, bountiful, tight, hale, sturdy, sound, clean, clear, very certain and more than competent. A most agreeable book. fk.
