Both the head and tail of the spine a little bumped with light associated creasing to the wrapper. Several tiny bumps to each of the upper board edges. Several to the lower board edges too-none heavy. The wrapper has been price-clipped.

The text block remains very fresh, clean and tight. A very good plus copy in a very good wrapper.
