Condition: This book has seen better days. The cover is faded along the edges and has stains. Two previous owners' names are written on the half title page. The same page has a damp stain as does part of the text block, but it does not seem to have affected the interior of the book itself. The binding is tight and there is mild to medium tanning throughout.
