MUCH SOUGHT ALABAMA PHOTO BOOK!
Dust jacket is good and solid but is somewhat worn with some rubbing and a 2 inch scratch on the front panel. Dust jacket flaps taped to blank endpapers of book with masking tape long ago. You MAY be able to remove the masking tape - I did not want to try. THE BOOK ITSELF IS NEAR FINE TO FINE.
(the fine print ... [sigh] ... but please read :-)
