The book is in good condition, with a previous owner's inscription as well as the author's. Some light fading to the boards and tanning to the spine. The pages' fore-edge is untrimmed but clean, and the book is in strong readable condition. The slipcase has very heavy surface wear and is chipped to all edges and the decorative paper label is almost worn off.
