Minor edge wear. 

The impression from the cards
laid in the front
and the "shit scraper" in the back
is visible on the front & back covers.
The rubber band surrounding the cards
in the front "endpaper", has made
an impression on the title page. 

A piece of tape connecting a plastic bag with a leaf inside to a page has come unglued, leaving behind residue to the top of page.
