Some pages toward the front and back have a light trace of staining and there is some dust staining, and light soiling to the covers and a couple stains on the back cover. Some pages toward the front have creasing to the tip of the lower right hand corner and there is some slight creasing to front cover and some wear on the edges. There is a small address label affixed to the upper right hand corner of the title page. The covers detached but are still joined together and everything is laid neat back together. A Worldcat search only locates two copies.
