CONDITION ... This is a deaccessioned library volume which remains clean and attractive, with the following noted:
EXTERIOR — Catalog label on spine. Spine displays transparent spotting, likely as a result of application of catalog label. Boards have mild surface rub, and a touch of the same transparent spotting on the front ... board corner tips softly bumped ... basically clean and attractive. Top edge gilt a touch rubbed, else bright. Fore-and bottom text-block edges not marked.
BINDING : The rear flyleaf has been replaced, else solid with no detached or loose leaves.
INTERIOR — Library markings are at a minimum (identity stamp and discard stamp on front flyleaf), just discernible are some pencil erasures of catalog marks on title page (this has no real effect). There maybe one or two other catalog marks through the text, but I did not spot any. Basically the text is clean and unmarked - no underlining, no marginalia, no writing. All seems clean and presentable.
