The condition of the book is generally good. The dust jacket has several minor scuffs and blemishes, and light nibbling, creasing and wear along the edges and corners (including a 1cm tear along the top of the outside spine), but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
