Mostly clean internally but with a few notations as to hammer price and name of purchaser next to specific listings; chipping to cover edges, scuffing to green spine tape, binding loosening a bit, and a dove-tail wrinkle to most pages at head of spine. Art school ex-lib. stamp on title page. While pages for catalogue entries #638 and #815-818 appear to be missing, these "pages" are not present in other copies examined. Item #151791
