It is clear and not at all smudged. The book was signed in Glasgow during a Book Reading and Signing session for Christmas in 2000. The original ticket is long since gone missing but a Letter of Authentication was sought. The book is in Acceptable Condition with Original Dust Jacket. The book was Published by Bloomsbury in 2000.
You can see that the book has wear and a slant. It isn't in the best shape. It could be described as Good to be fair though I like to err on the slightly negative side incase my opinion is different to others.
The Dust Jacket is Original although it has no spring to it anymore. I'm being a little more reasonable as the book - not the signature as it's fine and clear! - has seen better days. Please look at all of the photos to give you a better idea of condition.
