    without a similar condition including this condition being imposed on the subsequent

    This book is sold subject to the conditions that it shall not, by ways of trade or otherwise, be lent, re-sold, hired out or otherwise circulated without the publisher's prior consent in any form of binding or cover other than that in which it is published and without a similar condition including this condition being imposed on the subsequent purchaser.

    What does a similar condition refer to?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: without a similar condition including this condition being imposed on the subsequ

    The text refers to itself. Anybody who loans, re-sells, or rents out the book must impose the same conditions as those in the text on the next owner. It's clumsily written, as whoever borrows or rents the book is not a "subsequent purchaser".
