Boys of Sixty One /. Photos carefully as they are part of the description -all of my books are VERY OLD and have wear; I try to cover the book's worse faults, but almost always there are some spots/ staining both inside and out, usually a few rips [excessive rips or large rips will be mentioned], some page folds /bumping, and tips and spine ends worn to varying degrees. If the inside hinges were cracked, I glue the paper part back down as best I can [sometimes there are only pieces to glue back, and sometimes someone inexperienced has done a poor job - if this is the case - I do mention it].Hinges and joints are reinforced if needed, this too will be mentioned. Unless otherwise stated, I try to repair all rips with documentary tape, sometimes I do miss a rip or 2, or other small things. Very good- excellent condition for its age - Text and boards very secure. Pages are all clean - free of rips, writing, or spots.
Some very light wear to the tips and spine ends. Back cover looks good too. Anything I missed must be very small.
When opening an old book, always have the front cover supported! Place the whole book on a soft pillow, one that the spine can sink into.

This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to.
So the old book smell doesn't bother me. As far as I can tell -this book does not smell.
