This was a personal copy, not a library copy. The spine has some surface damage, although the date and the title of the magazine are still clearly readable on it. The cover has some typical wear at the binding edge and is torn at the top and bottom of the spine but still well attached to it (see photo above). There is no writing or highlighting in/on any of the pages, except one mark on the back cover advertisement. The back cover has a -in.-long tear at its outside edge.
