*Book - Excellent and odor-free! Covers are vibrant, crisp and sharp, with raised-embossed gold lettering remaining pristine on both the front cover and along the spine, with only noted condition factor being a very small “dot” stain midway between the center gold embossed decoration and the right-side book edge. Interior pages also remain crisp and predominantly clean, exhibiting no writing, and with plates retaining like-new color vibrancy. A slight handful of pages do exhibit “smudge marks,” and a few have tiny “dot specks” in their margin areas.


*Cardboard Slipcase - though technically present, condition is less than fair
