Judging by the outside, this book was well read and well loved. The cover has sullied over the years and features a few small stains and scratches. The spine has split at the top, and there is about an inch long tear. The back has some light staining. Inside, the pages are clean, clear and legible. There are also no loose or missing pages. The colored plates within are bright and beautiful--saturated with color.
