Gray paper-covered boards with red titling and decorative border; paper spine label. Fair to Good condition only. Front hinge cracked but holding. Binding weak along the front joint. Chipped at head of spine about one-quarter inch, not affecting spine label. Text clean and unmarked. Clean internally. Book is protected by a new clear archival dust jacket.
