The text is in English, followed by the original Italian. This is a seriously cool version, I haven't personally seen a better or more elaborate one. No marks on the pages, they are nice and crisp white. The spine isn't creased as I haven't read it. I wanted to keep it as nice as possible.I don't want to let it go really, I wanted it for so long. You don't find this version for sale so grab it while you can. Please message for more info.
