Paste downs and FEPs has a touch of offset toning and the title page has a couple of very feint spots. Feels gently read. Minor bump to head and foot of spine, very good condition. Jacket some minor rubs to the top edge and light handling marks to the gloss. Some minor losses and chips to the spine ends, there is a 25mm closed tear at rear joint, however in the archival fitted cover the jacket looks very presentable. Overall a very good copy.
