Square, tight and clean throughout with quite mild wear to spine ends with a touch of toning at the crown. Top front tip gently bumped. A few tiny stains on the bottom page edges. Very attractive unclipped dust-jacket, ($6.95 plus 2/63 on bottom flap), has some fairly mild edge-wear and a couple of tiny nicks and closed tears. Still fresh and bright.
