Figures, tables, recommended reading, problems - within chapters. Thick book - 817 pages. Text is clean. Binding is okay - but loose as inner hinges are weak/ cracked, so spine rolls/ feels loose. Board corners are bumped/ splitting, surface marks to boards; top and tail of spine strip crumpled/ splitting. But intact. Heavy book - over 1kg - so expect to pay a bit more for shipping than the default price quoted. #104.5. Bookseller Inventory # 003609
