Bumping and rubbing to the head and to the heel of the backstrip and to the book corners. There is a crease that runs a quarter of the way up the backstrip from the lower backstrip edge. The remains of tape can be seen to the front book board. The book boards shows some marking. Slight dustiness to the top text block edge and very light browning of the other text block edges. A little rubbing and creasing to the top and bottom dustwrapper edges. the major fault with the dustwrapper has been a cut and tear in the front dustwrapper panel, measuring 5.5" long by 4.5 inches wide.
