Cloth a little rubbed and worn, especially spine ends and corner tips; boards bumped to lower corner with wear to cloth; a little splash marked to front board. Foxing/offsetting to endpapers; a name in ink to half-title page; occasional foxing or grubby mark and some handling wear but pages generally clean throughout; page-block bumped to lower corner.
