The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound. There is some age yellowing; in a nice clean condition. Some of the pages may be loose, and have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age; there is a small clear tape repair to Racing Notes and Notes from the Exchange page (see scan) - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description.
