The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs and blemishes, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.

Please note the booklet was produced and published privately, and so has an 'amateur' feel about - i.e all the photographs are photocopy quality. But this doesn't detract from the fascinating contents!
