Condition: Very Good. The cover has some light rubbing, a few scratches and wear to edges, corners and spine-ends. Scuffing and a few nicks along bottom edges. There is a crease across the top back corner and a few of the pages. Small closed tear at the base of the spine. Still an internally clean, unsold copy.
