Selling as pictured – the photographs are the actual item for sale and are not stock photos. While the description below is detailed, please study the photographs to get an exact idea of the book’s condition.
Good, if not very good, condition for age. Light cover and edge wear and very occasional minor surface marking/scratching. Almost erased biro former second-hand price at top right of front cover and small biro squiggle at top right of rear cover. Spine is very good, lightly chipped at bottom. Text block edges tanned with a little foxing. Crisp and sound internally, pages somewhat tanned throughout, trace of foxing early on front and back (really just the inner cover and initial page). No writing inside, just a small neat previous owner’s initials ink stamp on top of first page. All in all, a nice copy of this vintage paperback.
