Spine and corners are bumped and rubbed – latter badly so. Negligible damage to head of spine. Neat gift inscription and previous owners details in black ballpoint on flyleaf and front pastedown, respectively. Apart from one or two light crayon marks on p.8, the pages are in superb condition, and are tightly bound.
