Only indications of library use are name stamp on FFEO (also p.o. name) and minor pencil markings. Calf boards are totally loose (spine cover gone), and very scuffed and rubbed, with a fairly deep and long gouge on the front. Corners bare. Still, the text is all there, with Burns' poetry, songs, essays (including one on Scottish poetry), and songs of other Scottish poets. A treasure trove. And a nice fixer-upper.
