Summary Good

Assessor Ben Locke

Notes The book is in relatively decent shape considering its age. The front cover is still bright and unfaded. Top and bottom edges of spine have wear and creasing. The spine is still quite strong and the pages are in good condition with some signs of aging and water stains. Corners on front and back cover are slightly worn down. Small red pen mark on front cover.
