The cloth covered boards are stained and worn particularly at the edges and corners. The pages have yellowed, there is foxing, and a few pages where a student underlined things within particular works likely while studying for a test. There are some dog eared pages as well. The binding and all of the pages are intact and the book lends itself to a comfortable read measuring 7 1/2" x 5 1/2".
