On Apr-14-12 at 19:22:24 PDT, seller added the following information:

I'D LIKE TO CLARIFY ONE OF THE ABOVE CONDITION NOTES. THIS VERY OLD BINDING IS A BIT BRITTLE, AND SOME OF THE PAGES DON'T LINE UP PERFECTLY WITH THE TEXT BLOCK. WHILE THERE ARE NO OBVIOUSLY LOOSE PAGES, THIS SLIGHT MISALIGNMENT MAY INDICATE PAGES THAT ARE A BIT LOOSE, BUT NOT DETACHED. I'M CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO TUG AT PAGES TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE. I WANT TO BE AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS BOOK, SO PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS IF THERE ARE ANY CONCERNS.
