This book has an unclipped dust jacket, which has some light creasing and a 1cm tear at the bottom of the front of the dust jacket. The front flap of the dust jacket also has some creasing. The inside of the book is tight and clean, apart from one of two light marks on the page edges. 3 of the pages are lightly creased at the very edge of the bottom corner, and there is some very light tanning on pages near the side edges, but overall the book is in very good condition.
