Rubbing to edges and corners bumped.  Spine and covers creased and a bit grubby.  Fep missing.  Foxing to inside covers.

"The Palio is a fierce battle and race all at the same time," began the Umbrella Man.
"All year long the Palio is a fire bank.  Then it stirs; it blazes!  Out come the horses.  Away they go like a quiver of arrows all at once, round the town, once, twice, three times.  That race course is a death trap.  But the Palio has always been!
That is a fine reason why it always will be.  Time only sharpens the appetite."
Giorgio was gripped with excitement.  Now the thrill and glory of the Palio gave a powerful urgency and direction to his life.  Now he knew wher he was going.
