This antique song book is in very good condition, especially considering it is 141 years old. The covers are loose on the book, but the page binding is still tight and secure. The first 4 pages are attached loosely to the binding and have the most wear. All the remaining pages of the book are intact and are in very good condition. The music pages have yellowed with age.
