The book itself is 8.5" by 11" and has a black heavy card stock type front and back cover. Inside are 190 heavy semigloss pages. The book is spiral bound with the black plastic type binding. As far the contents go it consists of 20 pages describing how the following photos were obtained using an electron microscope. After that there are 166 pages of photos of highly magnified lunar rock samples with descriptions and details for each. The end pages are a small bibliography and acknowledgment pages.
I would rate this book a 9 out of 10. There are no folds, creases, stains ect... The only reason I would not give this book a 10 is due to the plastic binding being cracked in one spot. This could be fixed very easily by replacing the binding strip, but I will leave that up to the next owner.
I have looked at several online auction sites and have as yet been unable to find a copy of this book being bought or sold. This book appears to be very rare and would make a great addition to anyones collection. This book will sell to whoever makes the best offer over $200.00 shipped. Thank you for looking and I should have photos up soon.
