The Running and Maintenance of the Marine Diesel Engine

£19.99

Product description

Original brown paper jacket with the title and other details on the spine in black text. Some nicks and small tears around the edges mainly the spine, but no substantial pieces missing.

The price is on the spine so there is no price corner to clip. Some marking and discolouration due to exposure, consistent with age.

The book has dark blue cloth covered boards with blind stamped margins. The details are on the spine in gilt.

Top page edges are a bit dusty.

The front pastedown has a small bookseller's sticker in the bottom corner near the spine and a previous owners inscription near the top.

The hinges and binding are in very good condition with little sign of handling, the book appears not have had a lot of use.

The many fold-out diagrams are intact and most appear to never have been opened.

Small amount of light foxing to some of the early and later pages but the main text is largely unaffected.
