The top of page 269/270 has a small tear to the margin, not impacting print. Three quarters of the book has an old damp stain to the lower outer edges of pages. The binding is tight with hinges intact, but cracked between the 2nd free end-page and the frontispiece. *Includes chapters on baseball, archery, fishing, boating, camping as well as others. Overall a near very good copy.
