The only faults are a bit of light fading to the top and bottom edges of the boards.

The edges of the dustjacket have a bit of rubbing, with a very small amount of associated loss at the tips of the fold areas, and the top of the spine.
One small closed tear to the top edge near the flap fold area on the front panel.
No foxing to be found in the textblock, still clean and bight.
A bit of foxing and soiling to the edges of the textblock.
No previous owner's name or any other writing in the book.
