Original flush-cut papered boards a little sunned on the spine, lightly marked and slightly rubbed at the extremities; head of the front hinge slightly bumped, resulting in the loss of a small piece (10 x 15 mm) from the top left-hand corner of the front cover; overall an excellent copy (the contents are in very fine condition).
