Dust jacket front is clean but shows wear and fading along the length of the flap fold and the spine; small chips are present at the top and bottom of the spine and at the flpa fold corners; flaps are clean and bright with age yellowing along top and bottom edges and along folds, and original price ($5.00) unclipped; rear cover is yellowed and shows some smudging especially near the spine.
Overall, this is a near fine copy of the book in a fine dust jacket.CONTENTS
