The cloth cover shows wear and water damage; the spine is damaged and pulling away from the book; it has been repaired with masking tape which is getting discoloured and brittle; the pages are complete and flexible with some discolouration, especially at the edges; many pages have fold marks at their upper right corners; there are many handwritten notes on the blank pages included in the book for that purpose.
