The dust jacket has some minor edge wear primarily at the heel of the spine area, some rubbing at the edges, a smudge mark just to the left of the beast's head, no major rips or tears. The jacket has been protected with a clear, removable, Brodart brand cover. Black cloth covered boards with the author's name and title on the spine in bright blue, and the title in bright blue on the front board.
