A few blemish spots to boards and spine. Very faint cocking of spine. Paper at front hinge is cracked, but hinge is intact. Some speckling to the top-dyed edge. Dust jacket has a little surface wear, a little bit of chipping to the front fore edge corner, and a wear around the head and tail of its spine; not price clipped ($3.00). DJ is in an archival mylar sleeve.

Extensive and very personal inscription by the author on the ffep "To dear never-forgotten Frances." The inscription is a catalog of snippets of memories shared between Ardyth and her friend. Frances' full name is also in pencil on the ffep and whose last name looks like it might be Wagner.
