The interior is clean and bright with no marks. The dust jacket has light edge wear with a couple of tiny closed edge tears, very light scuffing here and there, and some wrinkling at the head of the spine panel.

The print measures 26 by 20.2 cm and has several notes, dates and a press caption affixed to the back with some light creases and wear (Chicago Sun-Times, 1980).

The flyer measures 21.6 by 27.8 cm and shows only faint wear and a very light crease in the upper right corner. (os) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
