Lightly worn. There's good news, and bad. The good news is that the book is signed on the title page. The bad is that the idiot previous owner pasted receipts all over that title page, including most of the signature. The receipts are from the Shroyer ranch, showing purchases from a visit there in 1982. Inside the front cover is a newspaper article about the ranch. So, as-is. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 254 pages; Signed by Author View more info
