The wear is considerable and VERY clearly visible and should be carefully examined/considered. We tend to grade the condition of our books rather harshly and took into consideration any and all wear when determining the value of this rare book. Our VERY LOW asking price is a reflection of that consideration and if this copy was in better condition our asking price would be considerably higher. We purposely and closely photographed what we consider to be the mot obvious and egregious wear.
Once again, we want to reiterate that the wear to both the book and the dust jacket is SUBSTANTIAL and VERY clearly visible! This is copy is Ex-Libris/Ex-Library and has numerous library markings! Numerous photographs from various angles were taken for your consideration/inspection.
Please closely and carefully view ALL the pictures for further clarification!
