Inventory No. 106756

Hardback, no dust jacket. Pictorial boards. In only FAIR condition. First edition. The spine has been repaired to the full length with acid-free archival repair tissue. This goes over the top of an old sellotape repair - the old brittle tape has been removed but staining from the sellotape remains along the length of the spine. There is also loss to the spine, approx. 5.5cm. at the top end and a previous owner has typed a small strip where the title goes so you can read the title of the book. Heavy foxing to the endpapers and pastedowns. No previous owner's names or inscriptions. The binding is firm and inner hinges are good. Plates are quite clean; there are just a couple of foxing spots to a few plates and some very light creasing to a couple of plates. pp. 34, plates.
