Chipped at extremities with loss to bottom of spine. General scuffing and rubbing to boards. Ownership stamp to boards and preliminaries. Cracked at front hinge but binding is holding. Some toning to pages. Manuscript annotations to title page in pen and pencil identifying, apparently correctly, the subjects of the books as William Warburton and Robert Lowth, as well as the author, Andrew Wilson.
