The soft wraps proof copy is in very good condition. There are faint and occasional fox marks along the edge of the spine on the front wrap. There are also 1 or two marks on the back of the wrap too. There is a stamp of a previous owner on the first free end paper. The spine itself is free from crease marks and there is no previous owners ink inside. Overall very good.
