Backup story featuring the origin of The Beast by Drake & Werner Roth. An attractive VG+ copy with few flaws. Bumps to corners & edges. Light wear at spine including a few minuscule stress creases & spots of feathering.

A couple negligible dings, areas of rubbing & a tiny ghostly fold crease or two aside, cover is bright, sharp, & remarkably unblemished, retaining much of its original gloss. There is a small area of water damage/staining at upper right that accounts for some staining & warping of the paper at that corner throughout the book.

A couple pages have folds at upper right. Small spots of staining to inside covers that carry over to faintly affect the first & last pages; i nterior otherwise slightly tanned & tight, flat, & clean throughout except as noted.
