    Overall the book is in good condition - the dustcover has some minor tears at edges but is generally good and tidy and underneath the blue cover boards are in perfect condition.

    Whilst the inside pages are clean and bright throughout - there is significant fluo-pen higlighting of passages on many pages. However this highlighting does not prevent the book from being in excellent reading condition.
