Small 1" stain to front cover, on Bukowski's forehead. The first leaf is detached. Spine glue brittle, this is one of those books from the era of imperfect "perfect bindings", where the spine glue eventually becomes brittle. If you open the book to far and crack spine, all the leaves will likely become detached from the spine glue. Ex libris bookplate of Paul Aubin on inside front cover. ; 72 pages.
