We Have Come a Long Way - Signed by Author

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

History book taking us in different eras each chapter from primeval days to the twentieth century, writing about how the common man lived rather than the upper classes.

Signed on front free endpaper 'With love Vincent: July 1962'. Includes dust jacket in reasonable condition but it does have some closed tears on the spine edges, and a small chip from the corner. Foxing on dustjacket and on endpapers and title page. The pages are mostly free of it, except that there is foxing on cut edges of pages and a little of that intrudes onto the very edge of some of the pages so not on the text.

The blue boards have bright gilt lettering on the spine and apart from a little fading on bottom edge they are in very good condition. The binding is firm.
