It seems to me a frontispiece is missing, the front gutter is neatly reinforced with an old narrow scotch tape, a 1" scotch tape repair on one page..
the linen spine cover is splitting for a few inches at the back crease,
the original owner's name in ink, written in fraktur.
The text throughout is in Fraktur, German Language, the pages have gently mellowed from age, but clean, unmarked, no wear.
The covers show a Victorian picture by Kaulbach, Children reading in a cozy garden hut, the edges are a bit scuffed, top corner is creased, but the picture is very good.
other than that this over 100 year old book is in very good condition.
