This volume is in good condition for its age and is still a usable copy. The hard covers are intact though shelf worn. The endpapers are beginning to split but the the binding remains tight throughout the book. Internally the pages are generally moderately tanned with some lighter and others heavier. Similarly, foxing varies from mostly mild to occasionally fairly heavy. There is also water staining to some pages (see photographs). Despite this, the text and illustrations are perfectly legible.
NOTE: The entire text is in the Welsh language.
