 The binding is holding well (not restored, so handle with care). This Sampler is complete, even almost all of the salesman instruction slips/notes are still present and attached. Few somewhat loose pages in the beginning. There is NO writing. Preserved gold embossing on the edges of the covers. There is some wear to the edges of the covers and areas on the leather. A very nice salesman Bible
