The base of the boards shows slight discoloration from shelfwear. The illustrated dustwrapper has a 1 in tear at the base of the rear fold, very slight chipping to the base of the spine region, and to the foot of the front fold, the top edge has a 1/2 inch tear, and chipping at that area covering the spine.
