Lovely cover art by R. Groves (Raymond Groves, Autosport artist?)†.

Hardback. Pictorial boards with cloth spine, in a dustwrapper. 192pp including b/w illustrations plus colour frontispiece. Size: 11 x 8.5 inches approx. (280mm x 214mm).

Dustwrapper rubbed, creased and worn with small loss to spine ends and corner tips; a few short edge tears; foxed and dusty, somewhat grubby to rear panel. Light shelfwear to spine and boards, a little sunned to spine ends, but generally very clean and bright. Endpapers foxed and creased, inscription in ink to front; pages age-toned and a touch dusty but generally clean throughout.

Overall, a nicely preserved copy and unusual to find complete with dustwrapper – quite lovely.

£35.00
