Tan burlap like cloth boards with metallic red lettering to spine. the red lettering has rubbed faint. Bottom edge of cloth shows 2 instances where light rubbing has led to minor fraying of cloth. there is also a tiny touch of fray hairs to upper front corner tip. Fortunately, these small instances of fray are an easy restoration mend with a restorer if so desired. A tiny speck on cloth panels. Inside panel, largely hidden by the DJ flap is a lightly written name of a previous owner. There are 2 tiny instances in the rear endpaper gutter where the rear endpaper and rear pastedown are barely pinched together. Original 1st issue DJ is bright and nice.

DJ flaps show old tape ghosts that are not present anywhere on the inside or outside of the book. A tiny, faint, very faint random pen mark to front of DJ - barely vsible.
