  • Condition

    The dust jacket is sunned to its borders and spine. It has shallow edge tears, and several spot stains toward the outside front edge. It is in good overall condition, with all the lettering unfaded, with no large stains or deep tears, and with the price ($4.00) not clipped. The cover (app. 5.25" x 7.25") is in very good overall condition, with the following flaws: a shallow dink to the bottom edge of the back cover (see photo), and a moderately slanted spine. The light green cloth background is clean and unfaded, as is the black lettering. The connection to the inside is secure. There are no notable stains. The most notable flaw to the inside is foxing to the page edges. The pages are otherwise in excellent condition. The page faces are clean throughout the book, with all text and art as new. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears or creases. The only attachment is a small bookstore stamp (Wittenborn Art Books) at the bottom of the back inside cover.
