The Sight of Sound

by Leppert, Richard

Condition: Very Good/Very Good

Berkely: University of California Press, 1993. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. From the cover, "Music, Representation, and the History of the Body." Enchanting, newish book which is graded low due to its ex-library status. It was received with withdrawal marks on its mylar wrapper. It has very few ex-library defacements, and I'll list them individually. Book's jacket has stickers bottom of spine and lower front. A large donation sticker first endsheet and library's rubber stamp title page. Apart from these, the item is crisp and bright. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. We assure the buyer that books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. *.
