I bought this used and it said there were no pen or pencil marks. However, when it arrived (it was early, which was good!) there were numbers written in pencil on the second page, but I just erased those, so it was fine after all! The label was also practically impossible to get off, and I ripped a bit of the back page... oops... But I suppose that's not their fault, although I'm sure they could put the sticky label somewhere else!
