This book was in good condition when I received it, the dust jacket was just a little yellowed which makes sense on account of it being a former library book. The pages were all intact, no tears or frayed edges. As for the book itself, the art is gorgeous! I've been wanting to buy this copy of East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon for a long time, but it is out of print so you have to buy it used. P.J. Lynch's art is breathtaking as usual. I highly recommend this edition of a timeless fairy tale for the art lover or fairy tale enthusiast's collection.
