London: Scion Ltd., n.d. . First edition. Paperback. 126pp + advert. 7"x4.75" stapled text block with thin pictorial paper covers. Very fresh copy from long storage. Pages pristine. Staples, just visible inside covers, starting to rust. Cover by 'Ferrari' (Philip Mendoza) - of an apprehensive undressed woman and the shadow of a man with a knife: very bright and fresh, with a minimal knock to the leading edge and light scuffs to the upper joint. No soiling, creasing, or tears. Publishers' adverts on back cover. All very bright. Very uncommon. An unbeatable copy. Fine. Item #19500012
[nb: In hot and dry conditions, these Scion titles tend to tighten up and buckle slightly, so they ‘pop’ as you bend them. There is no harm in this. Their relative flexibility is soon restored when the conditions change.].
