Flinders, Matthew
The boards have been covered in contact and there are remnant sticky tape marks at the corners of both front and back end paper, and both paste downs. The rest of the damage is limited to a school stamp on the tail of the tiitle page and again on the tail of the last page. The back end paper has an empty date due slip and library pocket, as well as a Dewey sticker. There is also a Dewey label at the spine's tail. The body of the book is immaculate. 56 pages.
