    Condition: There is light overall light toning slightly darker on some edges. Some foxing here and there.
    There are a few small tears and light folds from handling.
     
    Most notably there is a small tear on the first page from edge above the word catalog
going down between the letters G and U & slightly below those letters. Immensely repairable- see below
Overall in very good codition considering it's 180 + years of age.

As these are antique paints the substances used in their paint recipe for sample swatches are mostly are unknown
therefore we are unable to ship to California or any state that requires contents on labeling.
