738 pages (complete). A stout, much owned copy of this fascinating book. It is most interesting to note where emphases lay, and how the language has travelled since the early nineteenth century. The boards are much scuffed, marked, worn all about. They are passive, sure. The spine has been a little sunned during shelving, but is agreeably appropriate. The guttering has been repaired. The papertrims are satisfyingly aged. The contents are, especially taking the book's age into account, benign, placid, assured. There are age-related marks, there is some usage wear. They are in general, and by far, clean, clear, most diligent and conscientious, most learned, enticing, comfortable and competent. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
