Some small chips, particularly along the top of the front flap. No clips. No large missing pieces.

BOOK: Bright silver lettering on the spine. Moderate cover edge wear. Of water staining on the top of the page block and on the surfaces of the end papers but apparently not on the rest of the page surfaces.  There is also a bit of stain on the top of the back cover. Pages are tanned with no effect on paper flexibility. Erasure marks on the first blank page. I found one page crossed out with a simple X, two pages with marginal brackets, and one page with a couple of paragraphs that are circled, all in pencil. There may be more. No tears, folds or creases to pages. Binding is tight with no looseness to pages. Not ex-library, not remaindered and not a facsimile reprint. For sale by Jon Wobber, bookseller since 1978. sIL30a
