WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a touch of wear to the bottom edges and very slight rubbing to the spine ends. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
BOOK: The book is square and tight. The boards are clean and bright. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are very gently bruised. The pages are clean and unmarked. No foxing. The closed page edges are dulled. No dog-eared pages - one page corner is bruisied. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges, no loose pages. No remainder marks.
