Condition: Good. Hardback in a similar dust jacket. This is an ex-library book with not much evidence of being so. There is just a small library label on the spine of the otherwise very clean dust jacket, which is now protected by a plastic jacket. There is also a label on the inside front cover and a stamp on a front end paper. The back flap of the dust jacket has been taped to the book leaving a mark on the facing end paper. The cover which is pristine. The binding is tight and there is no tanning throughout. The book still has a fresh feel to it
