  1. 9.4 IMHO Pressing looks definitely possible on this book and then 9.8 would not be out of the question (again IMHO)
  2. 9.4 IMHO Presents well, but, the scratches I think will limit this book to 9.4
  3. 9.8 IMHO Unless there are some "hidden defects" that are not visible in the photos provided or disclosed in your comments. Nice copy!
  4. Grades are in! Thanks Mike for all your hard work running this contest! It's much appreciated.
  5. I always start with a bang and go out with a whimper LOL
  6. 8.5 unless there are more spine tics or spine stress that is not visible or not disclosed
  7. The book would definitely benefit from a press and cleaning in my opinion. The "chip" at the top of the book is consistent with the bindery wraps when they bundled the books for shipping. This chip appears on your other copy as well. These two books were likely at the top or bottom of the bundle. I have this book at 9.2 as well. Like the other book I think a clean and press will get a grade bump to 9.4 and possibly 9.6 but no higher in my opinion. Very nice copies!
