Spine is rubbed and slightly darkened. Corners are slightly worn. There are a few light marks to the front cover. Both joints are cracked but not broken. Most of the tissue-guards to the plates have been removed. I think there may be an illustration to the prelims missing.

There is foxing and fingermarks to the contents. A decent copy overall of this very rare Brothers Grimm item.
