Condition: Used: Acceptable
Comment: Book is completely intact and legible, but has noteworthy wear and imperfections (including markings) - please read full description. There are markings on about 20 pages (underlining, circling, writing on open areas) - all text remains easily legible. Pages are otherwise quite clean. There are a couple creases that seem to be for marking a page. Pages otherwise have a modest level of common wear and imperfections (minor edge and corner wear, very small creases or bent corners, mild bends. All pages remain easily usable. Front and back covers have a 1 1/2-inch crease across the lower corner. There is a vertical crease on the front cover near the spine for the height of the cover from opening the cover. Covers have moderately high edge and corner wear (surface color has rubbed off some edge and corner areas), as well as some minor to moderate bends, scratches, and indentations - covers remain serviceable, nonetheless. Spine has no crease and binding keeps all pages intact. Book is clearly and obviously used, but remains easy enough to use. INCLUDES AMAZON SHIPPING, CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND RETURN POLICY.
