Book: Very good. Dust jacket: Good. Jacket sits somewhat loosely upon boards with moderate wear around the edges including chipping, tears and creases. Some tears taped on reverse side of jacket. Open tears to top edge of back cover, spine ends, and fore corners. Jacket is price clipped and top edge of rear flap clipped as well. Boards are straight and clean with pictorial front board image remaining crisp and clear. Fading to cloth-wrapped spine. Board corners and spine ends bumped. All pages are clean and unmarked though faintly tanned. Spine is straight and binding remains fairly strong on the whole, though a few instances of mildly split binding are present throughout. Tipped-in color image page (between 136 & 137) is partially separated from binding and worn around the edges as a result. Hinges are secure.
