Book is tight and square; light bumping to spine ends / this looks unread. No stamps, marks or writing - this is definitely NOT ex-library. DJ is in mostly decent shape with only a 1/4" tear at top right of back cover near spine & light wear to spine ends and top edge - but front cover shows light rubbing wear, and back cover has heavier rubbing wear along with scuffing/scratches in the middle (see scans.)
