PHOTO NOTE: The washed-out texture of the images is a distortion of the scanning and photographic processes used, which frequently alter the sharper textures of the images on the actual card. The photo and scans also exaggerate the prominence of lightly soiled spots, as well as the size and texture of what are actually small creases and flaws, all of which are much less noticeable in person.
CONDITION NOTE: Very good condition, inside and out. Staples are in good condition, with pages and cover secure. Spine is heavily worn, but the cover is fully attached with staple connections reinforced. Cover is heavily worn along the spline edge, which has been reinforced. Semi-glossy front and back cover pages have surface and edge wear, and show light foxing. Slight separations on the spine, and the back cover-fold have been reinforced. Inside matte-finish pages have foxing on the edges. Pages are lightly yellowed with age. [25-0621E]
