The condition of the book is generally ok. The cover boards have some minor scuffs, and light wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact and tightly bound. There are two pieces of tape remaining on the front and rear side covers, and a name in pen (along with some yellow blemishing) on the first inside page. The book also has spine roll.
