Good. (Large-9"x11.5" x 1 1/4" thick. ) Book Tour: NO DJ. Worst is damage at spine/cover margins: Spine has wide tape repair/wrap extending 3/4" onto both faces; the tape itself is torn at spine/back cover margin, all but top 2.5" (tape intact along front margin). Thru the gap in the tape one can see 5" cloth tear along that back margin; there may be something comparable at front, but can't see. Inside covers at spine, another wide tape repair, intact both front & back. Between what remains of original binding, & tape reinforcement, both covers are still firmly attached, even the back. Next-worst are divots taken out of board surface cloth, all near bottom edge, 1 on back (1/4", 5 on front (1/4" to 1"). Lastly there is an exceedingly light (i.e. barely visible, I'm not meaning to set up an image of visual contrast) stain along bottom page edges, up to 1" onto faces; visible mostly in residual waviness of paper, and on the tape repair inside front cover; on pages themselves, as I say, quite hard to detect by color change. All "normal" wear is slight: board outer corners, tips-only to 1/4" wear; top/bottom spine (other than cover separations noted earlier), obscured by tape but wear appears to be limited to 1/8", incl. cloth tears to that size. Board edges show little wear (except where the divots mentioned earlier extend to bottom edge); faces have a little shelf wear, and some dirty spots (a few light or shiny spots against mostly black background). Cover gold lettering still bright, but one dirty spot on 1st letter of author name. Page edges tanned, with some dirty spots; faces clean except name stamp p1 @ top right corner, and lightly tanned except 1st/last sheet & inside covers, more tanned or perhaps foxed. Page corners crisp. Fast, Professional Shipping w/ Tracking. "Best Descriptions, Toughest Grading! "
