Very mild bump to lower front corner tip, a bright, nearly fine copy in very good four-color pictorial dust jacket with light wear at edges, and several closed tears with tape mends, including two with associated wrinkling at the upper edge of the rear panel. Overall an attractive example of a colorful jacket rarely found in nice condition. (#155526).
