Notes The front and back covers are severely warped and appear to have suffered serious water damage. The spine still has the pages connected, but the book is stiff and hard to open and page through. Heavy marking, scratches, scrapes, and edgewear throughout. Tape used to repair or protect the top and bottom parts of the front and back covers, and spine.
