DESCRIPTION

 

Books are in Very Good condition. There is no reserve price.

1951

There are some marks to the spine and back boards but the gilt is bright on both.  There is a slight crease along the spine which has been slightly bumped at both ends causing a small amount of creasing.  The hinges are good and the pages are complete and clean internally, except for a previous owner's name and address written neatly on the inside page (see picture) and on the back two pages there is a thumb nail size patch where they have been separated after being stuck together, but this is not a significant issue and the pages are not torn (best description I can do). The edges of the pages are marked and have browned with age.

1952

There is one tiny mark on the back board.  The gilt is bright on both the front cover and spine which has been slightly bumped at both ends causing some creasing.  Both hinges have split (see pictures).  The pages are complete and clean internally but the edges have browned with age.

1956

There are no marks on the boards and the gilt is bright on both the front cover and spine.  The spine has bobbled and creased but the overall impression is very good. The hinges are good and the pages are complete and clean internally, except for a tiny amount of foxing on the first and last advertising pages (barely visible). The edges of the pages have a mark here and there and have browned with age.

1959

There is a tiny mark on both boards (barely visible), the gilt is bright on the front cover but has faded on the spine.  The spine been slightly bumped at both ends causing some creasing but the overall impression is very good. The hinges are good albeit slightly loose and the pages are complete and clean internally, except for some very slight browing on the advertising pages. The edges of the pages have a mark here and there and have browned with age.

Postage of £12.00 first recorded to the uk.  Overseas buyers welcome postage will be at cost for sending the book and requiring this to be signed for to ensure safe delivery.
