Comment: *COMPARE FEEDBACK!* Nearly like new. This book is in great shape. It shows some wear but not excessively. NOT ex library. Absolutely no writing, underlining, or highlighting. Some books may be otherwise new or like new, but have isolated wear. A book which has been used and shows it, but has not been abused *LOC1
