Book has very light, general wear and expected aging. Square and securely bound. VG to VG+. Dust wrapper has edge, corner and surface wear with a quarter-sized area of crease on the bottom edge that incluses a small chip -- this is visible in my scan. Dust wrapper is G+. This book is a well-researched volume on very tall humans, giants of sorts. Most of these people were forced to live lives and seek livelihood based on their size. They either were on exhibition or participated in some activity that utilized their height (like sports or movies). Although, there is a good bit in the first two sections of the book on historical giants who were sometimes great warriors and kings. Interesting book. Well illustrated with drawings and photographs. ; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 148 pages
