Such a step heralded, no doubt, the dawn of a brighter day for that distracted country." Plus ?a change . The boards have wear all about. They have scuffing, handling marks. They are steady, sturdy. The contents have flurries of foxing throughout. Nonetheless, the pages are comfortable, alert, clean, clear, competent, assured. fk. Good/No Jacket.
