The spine is sturdy and the board hinges are strong. There is a small scuff to the edge of the spine near bottom. Two small spots in the crease of the front cover spine fold. The text block closes tight and flat, relatively even overall, with just a few small spots on the top edge. The board corners are square and crisp. Lettering and design on the spine shows a hint of rubbing.Overall, a really pretty, unusual edition of an American classic.Will ship to you carefully packaged and fully insured.
