Acceptable. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover or binding but integrity is still intact. There might be writing in the margins, possibly underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
This is the best Guide to Rome I have come across. What Georgina Masson gives is the flavor and taste of the sites she describes. Her descriptions draw you in to the places and events and you want to see more. My experience with this guide was to go to a particular place, observe, go home to read about it in the 'Companion Guide to Rome' and then go back again to the same place and see it all in a different light. This guide does not overdo the historical facts. It gives you enough to understand, and want to know more. For me, this is the beauty of this Guide.
