This is an unusual edition of Zollinger's Atlas, as it is an International Edition printed in 2006.
The book has been rebound to protect it, the original paperback cover has been bound-in appearing as a free end paper. The edition has been attached as a whole inside a hardback cover, however, the original back cover is missing.
The rebound covers are red paper with gold gilt lettering and metal corner protectors, in keeping with the colour scheme. The edges of the cover show shelf wear, and small closed tears to the corners of the spine. There is also creasing along the edges of the spine, and corner bumping from general use. Despite this and scratches to the previous cover, the hardback protection has prevented further harm and there is no significant damage to the block.
The block has no annotations or markings, though there is some creasing at the beginning of the copy and a thumb print on the title page.
The book itself contains many illustrations, all in excellent condition, demonstrating the surgeries listed following the introduction these illustrations appear on every other page.
The book is large and extra shipping charges may be requested.
