This is a near fine book in a near fine dust jacket. The only flaw to the jacket is a light scuff to the top inside back edge. This should be easily cleaned. There are no tears or notable stains, no color fade or attachments. The price is not clipped. The book cover has no flaws of note. There is no fade, no stains, no tears or creases. The spine is straight and securely attached. The only internal flaws are barely noticeable (see photos) light stains to the top borders of the first and last pages, and one light mark to a blank front end page, presumably an adhesive residue. There are no writings or stamps, to tears, no page creases. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. All the art and text are as new, as can be seen in the photos.
