Please note that this is a FRENCH-language publication

In good condition overall, with a few flaws. Some creasing including prominent diagonal folds to a couple of pages and to back cover. Around three pages have torn, uneven edges where they appear to have been cut open by a previous owner (it looks as though it left the printers with around 3 pages not correctly trimmed/not fully separated at the edges). There is quite a bit of foxing to the cover as well as a few small tears around the edges. Several internal pages have small foxing stains. The binding is tight. No annotations
