Toning and partial sunning to covers on account of the inferior paper quality, including faint tidemarks and a small spot at upper front cover, and a diagonal fold line and handling crease to back cover. Text block with a faint diagonal fold line along right margin which has affected all the pages, and additional toning to last page. Very good overall. Item #956
