The condition of the book is generally good. The dust jacket has lots of scuffs and blemishes, and nibbling, wear and small tears along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is yellowing to the inside pages throughout, and the page edges have been left rough-cut from the time of publication.
