Now, folks, this is pretty special. For an ex-lib copy it is in very good order, with really nice gloss on the DJ and boards that present really well. Pages are generally clean as well. The library stamp page attached to the fep shows that it has been lent only 13 times, this explains the uncommonly good condition. It would be good not to have any ex-lib books in my collection, but what can you do? Realistically, how many of these later titles that are not ex-lib are on the market?
Nice glossy boards, very clean pages, incredibly tight binding, appears unread. I got this from an Abebooks seller, very reasonably priced. I see a couple of large Singing Serpents listed online, but exlib and priced at £20 plus postage? A little steep methinks, so I’ll hold fire on those for the moment.
