Condition: No dust jacket, as issued. The book has a white cloth cover, daft idea, which has defeated a previous owners attempts to protect it with a greaseproof paper cover. Needless to say, there are various soiled marks. The spine is sunned and bumped at the foot. The board corners are bumped. The book is comprised of rough cut pages and we can surmise that it has never been read since a fair number of pages remain uncut.
