GOOD/POOR ONLY (see notes) 215pp. Bottom right front corner of book chewed (? ), although book is crisp. DJ quite chipped, badly edgeworn. Mylar helps, but...Laid in is an original 2 page type letter signed to a Mr. Dean in the publishing industry, from an S B Shaw (? ) in Kent. Content of the letter talks about the lack of similar sporting books nowadays, the lack of illus in this book, and the current abysmal state of British politics. Pretty scarce, and just a reading copy in terms of condition, but kind of cool with the letter.

Fair. This paperback book shows signs of heavy use, including small tears. This paperback book cover has stickers/sticker residue on it. Shipped to you from Goodwill of the Valleys, Roanoke VA. Thank you for your support!
