Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...
The book jacket is in pretty bad condition, but the same image on the jacket appears on the actual book, so you could do away with the jacket if you wished.
As far as the book itself goes, it's faded a bit around the edges of the cover. There's a stamp on the back endpapers. Has the typical "old book smell".
ON THE FLAPS -
This is an authoritative introduction to America's trees. A key based on leaf shapes makes identification of about 150 species easy for the layman. Handsome full-color paintings show the trees' over-all shapes and typical habitats, with details of twigs, buds, bark, leaves, flowers, and seeds. The text summarizes field characteristics and commercial uses. There are also range maps, tips on how to study trees, and suggestions for amateur activities.
