London: Scion Ltd., n.d. . First edition. Paperback. 128pp. 7"x4.75" stapled text block with thin pictorial paper covers. Very fresh copy from long storage. Pages pristine. Staples clean inside covers, with some glue next to them squeezed from the spine when the book was made. Striking cover by 'Ferrari' (Philip Mendoza) - of a woman in underwear with her arms tied behind her but looking unfazed: very bright and fresh. No soiling, creasing, or tears. Publishers' adverts on back cover list six current Duke Linton titles. All very bright. Very uncommon. A beautiful copy. Fine. Item #19500013
[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.].
