Pages are not that dark -just taken w/out flash [true = 3rd picture]. They are crisp, clean, and white [very lightly toned at edges].
Corners bumpes, wear to ends of spine, boards and textblock secure, EXCEPT- it is heavily cracked in the middle, THE LAST PAGE IS SLIGHTLY LOOSE, AND one of the free endpapers in back is ripped in half. Back cover looks about as good as the front.Only 1 page for index illustrations is shown -there's another page list of ills. An absolutely great book on the history of the train from it's begining in 1790! Downsizing my huge book collection, check back now and then to see what's new!
