Contains a good bibliography and an index.
To narrate the photos: 1) On the front cover, it is easy to see no stain 2)The same with the spine. 3) On the title page and the page opposite, those are among the worst of the stained pages. 4)There is detail of the stain opposite the title page. 5) On page 17, the stain is already gone, but there is still a bit of ripple on the op of the page. 6) On page 23. Ripple still there, but light. As it is through the whole book. 7) The top of the page block. You should be able to see the stain. It is there if you look closely. 8) This is what we have of the dust jacket. Most of the front is missing.
