'Salem's Lot Dust Jacket

Post by racerx45 » Mon Nov 25, 2013 9:54 pm

Would anyone like to give me their opinion on the condition of this DJ? The seller did say that the DJ had been touched up in a few places but that they are very hard to notice. Thanks in advance

Small tear “repaired” using tape on the back and black marker

More black marker use in a number of places and the top right portion is missing and again tape on back colored in with black marker.

Since tape is used on the inside, I'd grade it Good.

For a modern book it would probably only be considered fair shape, but for its age I'd say its in pretty good condition
