Dust jacket spine panel text very faintly tanned; edges lightly worn with a chip across the crown and a few other minor nicks; rear panel lightly browned with some modest soiling to the white background; biopredation to the flap folds, causing some paper loss and the spine panel resulting in some minor bruising; price-clipped.
