The condition of the book is generally ok. The cover has several minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. The book also curves gently upwards along the left and right hand edges, from where it has been stored for a considerable time flat on the shelves.
