The condition of this book was in a slightly poor condition, this could be the result of the book’s age. The unique features of this book include folds at the top of the page from previous readers of the book marking pages, what make this interesting is that they are evidently old marks as lines from the fold have stained the other pages. Although this book has been placed in many libraries, a pare of initials at the top of the 2nd page (CK) implies it was once privately owned. In addition, there are a number of pages throughout the book which have been annotated by a pencil in the margin, these marks include simple lines and arrows pointing to the the bottom of the page. There is also a series of numbers next to the details of the books author and publication, this is a result of someone attempting to reference the books details by numbering the order in which to reference the books information.

The traces are five names that appear on the title page. Four of which are written in ink and one is written in pencil. All names have been crossed out with one line through the name. Possibly the names of previous owners who crossed out the last name before adding theirs, until the book was given to the Newcastle Upon Tyne Polytechnic Library and subsequently got into Northumbria’s later on.
