Most have dates of issue. A truly outstanding reference. The Book is now out of print and getting extremely difficult to find. The bottom back corner of the Book is very slightly bumped, otherwise the Book looks like it is unused. The Dust Jacket shows light wear. Overall the Book and the Dust Jacket are Near Fine. An opportunity to own a very nice copy of a very hard to find title at a reasonable price. Bookseller Inventory # 4971
