Summary Good

Assessor Cassie Coffey

Notes Considering the book's age, the condition seems good. The binding is still intact with no missing pages or tears (in cover or pages). The pages have yellowed but there are no markings that interrupt the text. Cover's color has faded and title/binding has blurred but is still readable.
