All pages appear to be intact, legible and undamaged. The outer spine of the cover has been reinforced with clear tape which is just beginning to peel--however, the information beneath is still clearly legible. The inner spine of the cover has come loose from the actual pages of the book itself, but all pages are still securely held into the inner binding. The edges of the cover are time-worn, giving this antique book a charming personality. Inside the front cover is a label denoting this book the property of a Mr. Byron A. Leacock of Huntington, Mills, Pa.
