This is rare issue in remarkably good condition. We call it a Betty-plus, about 85 percent of mint. Very light cover and spine wear with one small ding at bottom edge that affects front cover and first few pages. No pulling at staples. Radiant color with supple pages. Minor water stain at top edge of back cover has slightly rippled the last few pages. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
