A previous owner inscription to front free endpaper – Carol Raymont being an actress in a production of ‘Billy Liar’, appearing with Kevin Whately and Jimmy Edwards.
Hardback in price-clipped dustwrapper with an overprinted decimal price plus label – presumably this title took several years to sell out. pp ix, , 130, including b/w illustrations. 7.5 x 5.5 inches approx. (190mm x 144mm).
Dustwrapper showing some tanning to verso especially to spine; small dampstains to tail of spine and front fold; lightly rubbed and worn to extremities; impression/loss of colour to front panel due to price label however no surface damage. Inscription to front free endpaper; page edges tanned; ever so slight nicotine/smoky odour but doesn’t seem too objectionable.
Overall, light wear otherwise a nice, clean copy.
