Good condition. No dust jacket. The spine is sun bleached. General condition is commensurate with age; bumping to spine ends and board corners, shelf wear to board edges, fading to edges of boards, spotting to first few pages, creasing to some pages, endpaper of the rear board has torn at the spine edge. In general the pages are clean and flat with surprisingly little yellowing.
