In particular, please note the scuffing and rips near/along the edges! The wear is 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.
We purposely and closely photographed what we consider to be the most obvious and egregious wear. Once again, the wear to both the book and the dust jacket is VERY clearly visible!
