Black labels on the spine with gilt lettering and lines. Covers have light edge wear. Rubber stamped on the edges of page block 'OBU Library' in small letters. Endpapers were part of the rebind. Light foxing on the reverse side of the frontispiece and maybe a tiny bit on the next few pages. On the top of the title page written in neat pencil is 'Charles Dickens'. On the corner of the page is a gray stain, maybe a thumb print. On the 'List of Illustrations' page are a couple of discrete library rubber stamps. I see no other previous owner markings.
