£20.00

Product description

Publisher: Liverpool University Press, 1972, 1st edition, assumed publishers proof paperback copy with enclosed author corrections and type written author and subject index. Paperback, 129 pages. Illus with graphs, maps and tables. Enclosed are hand written corrections and type written author and subject index. A rare item as printed by Liverpool University in 1972, 3 years prior to publication of the 1st hardback edition of 1975. Book is in decent and firm condition with one or two marks. A couple of pen corrections on title page (apparently done by the authors). Green paper cover is in fair condition with some creasing and shelfwear to edges, small tear at top of spine and fading to spine and part of back cover. Paste-down title label to front is in fair to good condition. Enclosed type-written author and subject index and hand-written note of corrections are in good condition. An interesting and clearly very rare (probably unique) first edition 1972 publisher proof copy of this title which went on to hardback publication three years later. The indications are that this started life as a dissertation sponsored by Liverpool University and subsequently initially published by them in 1972 prior to later general hardback publication.
