The copy in our stock is in nice condition. The pages are clean without any markings, and the glueing of the binding is fine except for pages 3-6 which are detached. There is some age-related yellowing on the upper edges of the pages, and the covers show some shelf wear and signs of use. There’s a crossed-out signature on the first fly leaf.
