Spine and corners bumped and slightly worn. A few light scuff marks to cover edges. Joints were either cracked or broken but now repaired but evidence of old tape repairs and some slight loss of surface paper to endpapers. Heavy crease to page 50. Grubby fingermarks to contents, mainly at page edges. Page 86 has light ink mark along very top edge. A decent copy of this scarce little book. This copy would make a wonderful gift.
