Captain Brassbound's Conversion: An Adventure

£7.99

Product description

Captain Brassbound's Conversion: An Adventure by Bernard Shaw, is a play that explores the relationship between the law, justice, revenge and forgiveness. It has been visually inspected under strong light and graded Fair using AbeBooks Grading Guide as the pages are muddled lengths, incredibly worn on the edges and are almost 'furry' to touch in places, as well as the binding being exposed at many parts in the book (page view) and the paper is considerably darker here. The pages are foxed and smudged however the text is still legible and the page on the direct back of the front cover had an image but most of it has been torn off. There is no dust jacket so the cover is considerably worn, the front cover has smudges, marks and scuffs all over and in places has discoloured the material (worn off), especially around the edges and corners, all of which are starting to fray and curl under, also there is one crease in the top left corner about 2" and one at 1" in the bottom left. The spine is very worn, with fraying at the top and bottom and many marks and scratches, and it has been slightly discoloured due to handling and sun exposure. There are some red marks at the bottom of the spine and some indentations that do interfere with the text so its harder to read, the main title and name further up are still legible however but slightly tampered with. The back has a couple black dot marks to the upper left quarter and there are scratches and scuffs sporadically on the rest of the cover, as well as scuffing to the edges and creasing and denting to the corners where there is also fraying and exposure of the board. Both sides of the spine also shows binding wear.
