 Bound in full calf, the binding has been neatly and soundly respined, the boards are rubbed a little. The first and last few leaves have marginal losses and have been archivally repaired. The title is grubby. The text has some old ink marginal inscriptions and some small marginal losses in a few places; all is well bound in. COMPLETE in all respects with various indices in the back.
