There is some woodworm that would appear to be in the drawer runners that will need addressing. The inside front right leg has been dog-chewed and there are scuffs to the other legs. Some chips to the edges of the top. Some wear to the leather surface. The joint has opened slightly to the rear of the back left hand leg as you look at the desk from the front.
