Time on Her Hands

£19.99

Product description

Time on Her Hands was first published in 1942 by Ward lock & Co in London and Melbourne to 'Book Production War Economy Standard', as indicated on the fly leaf.

The boards are covered in green cloth, with no lettering or decoration, and are light faded rather than worn. There is some mild shelf wear on the edges, but the corners are bumped. The spine contains the book title, author's name and publisher, and has a slight stain with creases on the head/tail caps. Both inner hinges are strong and the binding is tight. There is some foxing on the end papers and pages, while the page edges are discoloured.

Overall, the book is in good condition, possibly due to protection and little use, but it has suffered slightly from the aging effects of 'war economy standard' materials.
