Condition: Very Good. Hardback in a similar dust jacket. Other than some wrinkles in the lamination at the back, the dust jacket shows few signs of wear. There is a previous owner's name written neatly on the inside front cover. The front and rear end papers have shadows from the dust jacket flaps. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is very mild tanning throughout.
