Books very good with trace amounts of age toning to pages, handling creases, bumps to corners, and light wear along spines on account of the side-stapling. Mailing envelopes good only with postage markings, handling creases, and bumps to corners, including wear along margins which has resulted in a few of the seams splitting. Item #902
