The book is exceptionally clean and stain-free, it stands perfectly straight, and it is very firm and tight in its binding, no pages loose or missing. The hinges are sound and undamaged, the corners unbumped. The pages are very clean, clear, and unsoiled, only faintly age-toned, and all text is bright, crisp and sharp. There is a previous owner's signature discreetly near the top of the front free endpaper, but absolutely no other writing, underlining, highlighting or other such markings in the book. The cloth binding shows virtually no wear at all and remains bright and crisp, looks almost like new. The dustjacket colors are faintly faded from age, but the jacket is very clean and stain free, moderately edgeworn, with occasional chipping and minor edge-tears, but jacket remains basically complete and intact, all lettering and graphics present and remain very clear, bright, sharp and legible.
