Doctor Who: In an exciting adventure with the Daleks.
David Whitaker: illustrated by Alfred Schwarzman, and based on the B.B.C. television serial by Terry Nation:
157pp, illustrated. Small bookseller's label on front pastedown, hidden under flap of jacket. Contents very clean, fresh and unmarked, except, oddly, for a blank leaf at the back of the book, which is foxed: none at all elsewhere. In the original red cloth-textured binding titled in gilt, clean, firm and very bright. Lovely copy, but I'm here to locate imperfections: the head of the spine is very slightly flattened, there are minuscule knocks to the corners of the front board, and there is a faint pressure mark low on the front board. The protected unclipped red pictorial jacket is clean and bright, with light scuffs and knocks to the edges, a little rubbing to the joints, a closed one-inch tear to the lower joint and a 3mm one to the front panel, and some erosion at the corners, chiefly at the head of the spine. There is a one-inch indentation to the front corresponding to the pressure mark on the board. A very nice fresh copy.
Near Fine in very good dust-jacket.
