February issue covers detaching, pages coming loose. Spine repairs with mull reinforcements visible along hinges. Front advertisements mostly removed from the November and January issues. December and January textblocks rippled from water damage. Covers rubbed and soiled, edge wear with small tears, chips, corner bends and creases.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
