What A Go! The Life of Alfred Munnings Charnwood Large Type
F. A. Thorpe (Publishing) Ltd. by Arrangement with William Collins Sons & Co. Ltd, 1988. Straight, solid, sharp former library with cool UK school stamps on fep and title page but no call tag or numbers on backstrip. A few small indentations, one light scratch on the rear cover and barely there sticker residue at the foot of the frt gutter. A bit of color loss on one still sharp tip, others and spine ends are lightly bumped only. Inner hinges are fine, 388 page block is snug, the pages are clean and not rumpled. Super nice exlib that was well cared for. Stated First Charnwood (Large Print) Library Series edition, complete and unabridged. Illustrated with 4 glossy pages (8 sides) of Munning's art in color. There is a bit of extra binders glue on the last page of text before the first illustration page causing a couple letters to be rubbed yet still legible. A very hard to find large type edition.
