This book was read. The top and bottom of the spine show tears at the corners. On the spine about half way down there is a piece of the picture and film missing. There is a name in ink on the title page as seen in picture #3. There is a tag peal on the front inside cover as seen in picture #7. There is a tear along the seam at the back liner page as seen in picture #6. The pages are yellowed which is usual for this series. There is some scuffing to the cover film, but I would say 97% is there.
