7 (Very Fine): The book shows moderate use/storage wear, there is some slight separation of the binder and inside cover pages, but remain intact, and heavy surface wear to reverse cover, all pages seem to be in fine condition with no rips or tears.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
