The copy in our stock is in good condition. The pages are clean without any markings except for the stamp and signature on the first flyleaves. The glueing of the binding is fine. There is some age-related yellowing on the edges of the pages, and the covers show some minor signs of use. The front cover is a bit bent at the lower corner.
