    Good, the cover, vellum spine with gilt lettering, pictorial boards, front and back, is in good overall condition, with scuffs and small stains, and wear, with some fraying, to the outside corners. The only extraneous elements are to the inside front cover spread, which has the name Peter Pollack (possibly the art curator/historian?) to the inside cover, and two numbers, as well as a stamp (Internationaal Literatuur Bureau, Hilversum, Holland) to the front end page. All the pasted in art is unfaded, clean, and securely attached. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears and few creases.
