The Amateur Mechanic - A Practical Guide for the Handyman (4 Vols.)

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Vols 2-4 have brown dust-jackets, rather grubby and tatty looking in places with some stains and marks, but surprisingly little damage considering their age; just light nicks and tears along the edges but no missing pieces. The DJ is missing from volume 1.

All books have blue cloth covered boards with blind stamped decoration in the form of a half-bound book.

The book details and decoration are on the spine in gilt print.

The front of volume one has a large dark stain on the front and substantial rust marks on the rear. The other volumes have been protected by the jackets.

No inscriptions.

Only foxing appears to be confined to the endpapers.

Despite their external appearance, internally the books are in remarkably good condition, appearing to have had little use.
