Fragile and somewhat cracked hinges. Some creasing, scratching, rubbing, discoloration to the paste-down pages, end-pages, text-block/text-block edges from age and previous use (see photos). The dust jacket is price clipped (price torn is a more accurate description if you look at the photos) and is in poor condition with edge-wear, chipping, areas of discoloration, creasing, and other visible misc.
