The condition of the book is generally good. The covers have some minor scuffs, and light wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a very small amount of yellowing to the extreme edges of the inside pages throughout, and some very light bubbling to the right hand edge.
