Hardbound in blue imitation leather with silver titles on the front cover and spine. Slides into a cardboard slipcase with illustrated covers.
Contents tight with very faint damp stains at top of the first few pages. Covers have minor soiling and some light wear along the spine. There is light wear and a few damp stains to the slipcase, and the top and bottom end pieces are missing.
