Condition: This book is in great shape overall with no missing, bent, or torn pages. On the first blank page, "1928 F.F." is written in pencil in the upper, right hand corner. There is no other writing on any of the pages that I could find. The binding is good shape with slight worn spots at the corners and one on the top edge. There are a few creases on the front cover. The cover has some sun fading around the edges, around where another book was stacked on top of it. There is a slight musty smell to the book, but no water damage.

Book measures approximately 6.25" wide x 9.25" long x 1.75" thick, and contains 1063 pages, plus cover and end pages.
