The book is bound in speckled calf with gilt decoration and red and black spine labels as was customary for bound volumes of parliamentary acts. Some rubbing to extremities and along the hinges, and on boards but the binding is sounds and about very good.

Additionally a further 134 personal and local acts are enumerated regarding roads, canals, enclosures and private estates.
