Fair condition. Four works in one volume.

The book has been repaired with all pages having reinforced hinges. Page 13 of Cat and Mouse is missing as it is from all copies. Covers are worn and chipped at edges and badly scuffed to rear. Extensive foxing and grubby marks throughout with pencil drawings and annotation mainly on blank pages. Despite all this it remains a readable copy of a scarce Victorian book.
