Traction Engines Worth Modelling - and How to Model Them

£14.99

Product description

Glossy pictorial jacket features an artists impression of a showman's engine, and the titling is in the fancy font often used around fairgrounds.

Some wear and small nicks around the edges, mainly the front with a small tear at the top of about 1.5cm and a smaller one at the bottom, but no missing pieces. The flaps are a little creased and curled but the price corner is intact.

The book has plain red cloth covered boards with the details on the spine in gilt text. So wear and the corners are in good condition.

the hinges and binding are in very good order, although it has been read, it appears to have had little use.

No inscriptions.

Drawing foldouts in excellent condition.
