The spine has cracked hinges and is shaken with a loosened binding. The cover has worn corners and shelf wear. The title page is included but is no longer attached to the book. The pages are heavily sunned and somewhat brittle. A few have small rips or creases. The pages have that pleasant 'old paper' scent.
