Part is unfortunately missing from this copy, beginning with the "Vorred"; preface and index with minimal restoration to the fold and corners of the pages; title page II. Part present and very well preserved; overall paper slightly darkened inside due to age, with only minor foxing and very well preserved due to age, some pages slightly - more rarely more strongly - creased at corners; only occasionally pages with somewhat heavier signs of use; in Part II leaves 130-145 at upper corner with browning of former moisture - overall still a very good copy due to age of this rare early edition of the title.
