This book is in a very good condition with some edge wear to the cover and with no writing or other marks in the book. The dust jacket is rough along the upper and lower edges with several small tears and a few small missing pieces primarily at the spine. The watermark at the upper edge of the dust jacket, in the region of the spine was most likely due to contact with damp fingers when the book was removed from a bookcase.
