The condition of the book is generally ok. The cover has several minor scuffs, blemishes and creases, and some light nibbling along the edges and corners, and there is also some discolouration and fading along the outside spine, but the staple spine itself is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is some light foxing to the inside covers and first and last few pages, as well as the inside middle pages
