Margin tear to lower edge of page 99/100, just reaches text. Some black spots to colour plate pages, mostly faint and on versos. Light browning to endpapers and an odd fox spot but generally a nice clean copy. Dustwrapper has loss from ends of spine, top corner of rear panel and top of front fold and a few small chips.
