Proceedings of an International Conference Held at Lincoln Nebraska, April 1996. This book is in very good condition. The cover is in excellent condition, with just very minor edge wear and slight indentation lines on the front cover to keep it from being almost as new. The first few pages have a slight warp line (less than a slight crease), but otherwise the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked. This is a rare copy of Oxbow monograph 94 - Proceedings of an International Conference Held at Lincoln Nebraska, April 1996.
